ALADS to Sponsor Up to 50 Members Who Wish to Attend the 2017 California Peace Officers' Memorial Ceremony

On May 7th and 8th, Californians will be honoring ten officers who lost their lives in the line of duty in 2016 including our own Sergeant Steven Owen and Sergeant Alfonso Lopez at the California Peace Officers' Memorial in Sacramento. We will also be honoring five officers from prior years who will be enrolled, four of whom are Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department personnel.

ALADS wants to encourage as many of our members to attend as possible. To do so, ALADS will sponsor members to help mitigate the cost of attending. ALADS will reimburse up to $100.00 per hotel stay, double occupancy required (max. of 50 members). ALADS members interested in the reimbursement should submit a copy of their hotel bill including the name and Employee ID Number of both occupants. Members may submit their request to the ALADS Facility via U.S. mail or by email to Gail Webb at gwebb@alads.org. Only Full ALADS members are eligible for reimbursement.

ALADS has reserved a block of 40 hotel rooms for check-in on Saturday, May 6th or Sunday, May 7th and checkout on Monday, May 8th at the Hilton Garden Inn Sacramento / South Natomas located at 2540 Venture Oaks Way, Sacramento, CA 95833. To register by phone, call the Sales Department at (916) 568-5400. The Group Name is ALADS. Rooms are available while they last. For deputies and district attorney investigators who wish to reserve their room online, click here.

All deputy sheriffs and district attorney investigators should take the time to attend the memorial ceremony at least once in their career. We sincerely hope that fifty ALADS members will step forward to take advantage of this offer and attend this year's memorial.
