Jump to: navigation, search


The following Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers have all been killed in the line of duty. A total of 203 officers are officially recognized as having died in the line of duty by the Los Angeles Police Department. This list also includes two Los Angeles City Marshals, the chief law enforcement officer of Los Angeles, California in the city's early years before the LAPD was established in 1869 and who headed the LAPD until 1876[1] as well as three other officers who are not currently recognized by the LAPD as having died in the line of duty,[2][3][4] bringing the total shown here to 208.

The term "line of duty" means any action which an officer is obligated or authorized to carry out, or for which the officer is compensated by the public agency he or she serves. The term "killed in the line of duty" means a law enforcement officer has died as a direct and proximate result of a personal injury sustained in the line of duty. This includes law enforcement officers who, while in an off-duty capacity, act in response to a law violation, or are driving to or from work.[5]

The fallen officers of LAPD are honored and remembered in a number of ways. The Los Angeles Police Memorial is a monument outside Parker Center, the LAPD's headquarters, and was unveiled on October 1, 1971.[6] The monument is a fountain made from black granite, the base of which is inscribed with the names of the LAPD officers who have died while serving the City of Los Angeles. The California Peace Officers' Memorial is a wood and glass encased book containing the names of all fallen officers in California, and is attached to a wall outside the Governor's office in the state capital Sacramento. In 1988, the California Peace Officers' Memorial Monument was dedicated to the memory of the state's fallen officers. The monument is a 13-foot-tall, three-figured bronze monument in California's state capital, Sacramento, representing a county sheriff of the 1880s, a state trooper of the 1930s, and a city patrolman of the 1980s.[7] In the United States capital city Washington D.C., the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, which was established in 1970, honors law enforcement officials from across the nation who have died in the line of duty.[8]

Randal Simmons, the first SWAT officer to be killed in the line of duty, on February 7, 2008

When an LAPD officer dies, the funeral is often one of pomp and pageantry, such as that for Randal Simmons in 2008, which was observed by over 10,000 mourners and onlookers, including Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, LA County Sheriff Lee Baca, Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, LAPD Chief William J. Bratton, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger,[9] and featured a procession of motorcycles, cars, SUVs, SWAT vehicles, and horses that lasted over an hour, a missing man formation, a riderless horse, a flag-draped casket, a three-volley salute, and "Amazing Grace" and "Taps" played by a bagpiper and bugler, respectively. It was the largest police officer funeral of its kind in the United States.[10] Only one recent funeral did not have a riderless horse; that was Charles Heim's, as it was his duty to lead the horse at officers' funerals.

Notes[edit]

  • A This fallen officer is not officially recognized by the Los Angeles Police Department[53]
  • B Jack Whaling and William Warren were Los Angeles City Marshals, the chief law enforcement officer of Los Angeles in the city's early years, before the formation of the LAPD.[2]
  • C Charles H. Crowe appears neither on the LAPD's monument at Parker Center, which lists its fallen officers, nor on its list of Officers Killed in the Line of Duty on its website, but has been honored on The Officer Down Memorial Page website since March 2011.[17] According to the Los Angeles Police Historical Society, however, the 1917 Annual Report of the LAPD to the City Mayor mentions Crowe as being killed on duty, and a newspaper of the day reported on his death with the headline "Officer Follows Duties to Grave."[3]
  • D Charles Williams was the first African American LAPD officer to be killed.
  • E It was discovered that the man who had killed Walter Kesterson had killed Richard Pennington of the Vernon Police Department ten days earlier.
  • F The story of Ian Campbell's kidnapping and murder was turned into a non-fiction novel and movie, The Onion Field.
  • G Tina Kerbrat was the first female LAPD officer to be killed.
  • H Landon Dorris had served three-and-a-half years with the LAPD, and six years with the California Highway Patrol.[47]
