On Wednesday, May 14, 2014, The City of Oxnard and the Oxnard Police Department welcome you to the 15th annual Police Memorial Ceremony starting promptly at 10:30 a.m.  The 30-minute ceremony will occur in front of the Public Safety Building, at Third and C Streets, Downtown Oxnard (251 South “C” Street, Oxnard CA).

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls as Police Week, honoring those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

In Oxnard, the City and Police Department pay tribute to honor our own fallen—our seven Oxnard Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty since our city’s founding.  The ceremony will include a 21-gun salute, the rider-less horse, and a final song by the Oxnard High School Choir.

Our fallen Officers are:

Deputy Constable Andrew M. McNaughton

Constable William E. Kelley

Officer Albert Gasperetti

Officer Frederick J. Clark

Senior Officer John Adair

Officer James E. O’Brien

Officer James R. Jensen, Jr.

For further information, contact Sergeant Marc Amon, at (805) 385-8300, or [email protected].

Editor’s Note: This is also in our events section.
