Our hearts are heavy once again as we mourn the loss of 31-year-old, Police Officer II Jose Anzora, Serial No. 40848, who passed away earlier today following a heroic battle for his life after being injured while on-duty.

Our deepest condolences go out to Officer Anzora’s wife, family, colleagues, and friends in this most difficult time. His passing is a loss for not only his brothers and sisters in the LAPD, but for the people of Los Angeles for whom he gave his life. Officer Anzora is survived by his wife, his mother and family.

Officer Anzora began protecting and serving the people of Los Angeles in 2011, most recently in Newton Area, where he spent most of his career.

The Board of Police Commissioners President Eileen M. Decker also wanted to express her support with the following statement: “On behalf of the Board of Police Commissioners, I want to express our condolences to the family, fellow officers and civilians with whom Officer Anzora served and the entire LAPD family. This is such a tragedy and words cannot express the loss to all. We thank him for his service to our City of Angels and may he rest in peace.”

In memory of Officer Anzora, Chief Moore has authorized the wearing of mourning bands, which we have sadly already been wearing in honor of LASD Deputy Thomas Albanese.

Officer Anzora, thank you for your service. May God welcome you home and may God bless the Los Angeles Police Department.
