Santa Cruz Community Gathers in Support of Law Enforcement Officers Nationwide

The Santa Cruz Police Department would like to express their deep and humble appreciation to the members of our community who gathered in the front courtyard of the police building in support of Law Enforcement Officers nationwide.  

During the late afternoon of January 1, 2015 several members of our community came out to show their support for the good, dedicated and hard working officers who serve their communities honorably.  They also took this opportunity to remember those officers lost in the line of duty and to recognize the daily sacrifices made by the families of the brave men and women in law enforcement. This effort comes as some police departments across our great nation are coping with difficult times.  

We would also like to thank members of the Santa Cruz Fire Department, Watsonville Police Chief Manny Solano, Santa Cruz County District Attorney Inspector Henry Montes, Scotts Valley Police Lt. John Hohmann (ret.) and the many other county wide law enforcement partners who gathered with us.

It was truly encouraging to see our community stand with us in support and partnership.  Santa Cruz is blessed to have such an actively engaged and positive community who support the work being done by our law enforcement professionals to keep our communities safe.
