Sheriff McDonnell Held 49th Annual Los Angeles County Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony and Wall Ded


For the second consecutive time since the restoration of the Eugene W. Biscailuz Regional Training Center, the 49th Annual Los Angeles County Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony was held on the facility grinder. The “grinder” is where young men and women striving to become peace officers of the future are trained and tested. It is where they will forever be reminded of the sacrifices of those from the past.

The annual Los Angeles County Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony commemorates the lives of these peace officers and recognizes their ultimate sacrifice.
