(Oxnard, CA) On Wednesday, May 9, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. the Oxnard Police Department will honor seven officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. This is the 13th annual Oxnard Police Department Memorial Ceremony. The ceremony pays tribute to Deputy Constable Andrew McNaughton, Constable William E. Kelley, Officer Albert Gasperetti, Officer Frederick John Clark, Senior Officer John Adair, Officer Jim O’Brien and Officer James Jensen who were killed over the course of the department’s history.
According to the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial Fund, peace officer fatalities are down about 40 percent when compared to this same time last year. There have been 39 officers killed in our nation so far this year.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as National Police Week. During that week, law enforcement agencies all across the U.S. will honor fallen officers through a variety of events.
The OPD Memorial Ceremony is open to the public and begins at 10:30 a.m. and will last about 30 minutes. The ceremony will take place directly outside the Oxnard PD office near the intersection of Third and “C” Streets.
