The service will include at least 500 police vehicles traveling a 30-mile procession through Sacramento to a funeral home.

“She chose to be the difference in our community to assist those who were vulnerable and those who alone could not help themselves,” Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn told the Sacramento Bee.

“We know that this police department provided the best training for Tara. For that we are always grateful,” O’Sullivan’s father Denis told the AP.

Ramos, 45, was arrested. He appeared in court June 24 on murder charges for O’Sullivan and her training officer, and could eventually get the death penalty. He remains in jail.

Services for O’Sullivan will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Bayside Church Adventure Campus in Sacramento, according to the Bee. Officials have warned residents to prepare for traffic delays around the city due to road closures.
