Photos Discovered and Released in Historical Display of Officers Killed in the Line of Duty NR11156mg

Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department enjoys a rich history which we are fortunate to maintain and enjoy through the efforts of our Los Angeles Police Historical Society.  The men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department can’t thank the members of the Police Historical Society enough for their dedication and commitment to preserving the rich fabric of our history.

In 2005, members of the Historical Society were engaged in a photo archive sorting and cataloging effort.  During this process they came across a tall box containing tightly rolled portraits of 13 officers who were killed in the line of duty.  A web search revealed that none of these 13 officers had ever been depicted on the national website that tracks Officers Killed in the Line of Duty.

Through an exhaustive effort on the part of the members of the Historical Society, they were able to obtain funding to restore these valuable photos so they can be displayed and remembered by the Department and the Los Angeles Community.

Department personnel searched the Los Angeles Times archives to find corresponding information regarding the Officers depicted on the photo display.  Through that search, Times personnel were able to give to us a snapshot of the events surrounding the lives of the officers at the time of their deaths.  The Department is honored and thankful to both the Historical Society and the LA Times for giving us the opportunity to remember those who sacrificed their lives for the safety of our Community. 

The historical photos will be on display in the lobby of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Police Administration Building located at 100 West First Street, Los Angeles, and will run through the month of May for National Police Memorial Month. 

For further information call Media Relations Section at 213-486-5910.
