The San Diego County Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony will be held at the new sight of the Memorial Monument located at the County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway in San Diego.  The monument has been moved to it’s new location, just north of where it previously sat.  As the construction of the Embarcadero Park nears completion, the sight should make for a very fitting location for the “Wall of Light.”  The public along with all law enforcement personnel are encouraged to attend the ceremony It will begin at 12;00 noon on May 7, 2014 and honor all 85 San Diego County law enforcement officers that have lost their lives in the line of duty.  Fortunately, so far this year we have not had to add any names to the Monument.
There will be a Candlelight Vigil held at the same location on May 6, 2014 at 8:00 pm.  There will be remarks by various law enforcement administrators as well as past survivors.  The program will also feature music and a video presentation.  The candlelight vigil is being sponsored by The San Diego County Motor Officers Association

HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — A suspect was killed and a Los Angeles Police Department officer was wounded in a shooting and standoff Monday morning in the Hollywood Hills.

Officers responded to a domestic battery call just after 8 a.m. at a four-level apartment home in the 8100 block of Gould Avenue.

“Upon arrival, officers made contact with the individual. The individual produced a [semiautomatic handgun] and an officer-involved shooting did occur,” Sgt. Frank Preciado said.

The suspect then barricaded himself inside the residence.

KCAL9’s Kristine Lazar reported that two witnesses were able to escape the home.

A few hours later, the SWAT team found the gunman inside.

“They did find a male suspect slumped over. He has expired from a gunshot wound, it appears. It’s unknown if it was self-inflicted or that was gunfire from the officer,” Preciado said.

The female training officer was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with some kind of wound to her face. Her partner did not leave her side.

“When the shots were discharged, it’s unknown if it was shrap metal or the actual projectile from the firearm or wood from the surrounding wall [that hit her],” Preciado said.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck took to Twitter after speaking with the officer, a 14-year veteran of the force.

“She’s here in the hospital in good spirits. She’s awake and alert,” LAPD Hollywood Division Capt. Cory Palka said. “She’s a solid officer. She’s very well-liked by her peers. Very well-liked by the community.”

A civilian was also taken to a local hospital.

Both sides of Laurel Canyon Boulevard near Mount Olympus were closed for an investigation.

Many residents were stranded.

“This is crazy,” Stephen Schonfield said. “We have 24-hour patrol 24/7, so that kind of keeps things quiet.”
