Law Enforcement is a dangerous profession. Police officers face very dangerous people and deadly situations daily. In carrying out the duties they swore to perform, officers some times make the ultimate sacrifice. Two of Whittier's finest officers did not come home at the end of their shifts.

This page is dedicated to Whittier Police officers, John Pierce, Michael Lane and Keith Boyer who were killed in the line of duty while protecting the community against dangerous criminals. They will never be forgotten.

Visit the California Peace Officers Memorial Page and the Officer Down Memorial Page to learn more about those who gave their life for the safety of the community.
