Every year hundreds of law enforcement professionals are killed by senseless acts of violence and accidents while protecting their communities and serving the citizens of this nation. These professionals face the unforeseen day to day challenges head on while forfeiting time with their families and loved ones, all for a life of calling.

LEMA would like to recognize while they have paid the ultimate sacrifice, we must not forget the ones they left behind.  Their families will never be the same again, nor will their partners who also feel the hollow space left after the sudden unexpected loss of these heroes.

We would like to encourage the visitors to our page to review our local heroes who stood tall in the face of adversity and gave their life to make the Sacramento area a better place to live. They will never be forgotten and will live on in our hearts forever.

Please consider donating to one or more of the listed charitable organizations, so everyone has a place to pay their respects for those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

End of Watch

Help us honor their memory by clicking on their names and reading the stories of their heroism.
They will never be forgotten and will live on in our hearts forever.
