Gone but not forgotten ...


Similar to other brotherhoods that exist between professions, the same holds true in law enforcement – there is an unwavering brotherhood closely knit with a bond that cannot be broken. The Buena Park Police Department’s Law Enforcement Family has experienced a wide variety of historical moments. Like any family, unfortunately, along with joyous events, successes and failures, we have also suffered great loss. Our family has lost four of our own in the line of duty.

In memory of our Fallen Officers who made the Supreme Sacrifice to the People of the City of Buena Park, giving their life in the line of duty … Our brothers are gone, but not forgotten.
