February 26, 2010

Los Angeles:  A Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer was killed in an early-evening traffic accident yesterday while off duty in the Diamond Bar area.

Police Officer II Jacqueline Montalvo was a veteran officer with nearly 11 years of service.  Most of her time with the Department was spent on patrol serving the LAPD Hollywood Area community.  Montalvo was well liked by her peers and coworkers.  “Jacqueline was a hard worker and sought-after partner,” said LAPD Hollywood Area Commanding Officer Captain Beatrice Girmala.  “She will be greatly missed.”

Questions regarding the traffic incident that took Montalvo’s life and caused serious injuries to others should be directed to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which is responsible for the investigation.
