Portrait of Grace


Grace was an officer for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and was stationed in Lancaster, California, USA. She had been an officer for five years at the time of our meeting and decided to become a police officer because she liked to help people.

I met her at a ceremony memorializing the death of police officer Sgt. Steve Owen. They had renamed a popular park in Lancaster in his name. Grace, other officers, some local officials and various citizens assembled to honor Sgt. Owen.

It was very sad because At the time we met, it was just after the Las Vegas shooting 2 LA County sheriff’s employees were among the wounded. But the officers were brave and came to the memorial despite the tragedy that befell our nation.
