I do not have the specific dates and details you requested but thought I'd just list a few things for which  Lee should receive some recognition. I know there are plenty more by others but these are some that I recall.

I'm pretty sure he had slightly more than 30 years on SJ. Then approx 14 years as a Reserve after retirement. It seemed so strange when he showed up at the Kelley Park job I ran for years with a slick sleeve. Since I had stripes he kidded me about being "boss". We know that no one was ever really a "boss" to Lee as he was competent and accomplished and self-motivated to get the job done, as he did in so many arenas.

I do not have a complete list of his assignments, only a few of which I was involved.

Obviously he worked patrol. When I met him he was a district sergeant. I appreciated that since I had about 6 years prior service he treated me and others with similar experience as experienced officers not "boots" as some were inclined to do.

Lee worked I/A and I'm happy to say I was Not a customer. 

Sgt. Lee Wilson was a teacher, trainer and mentor. He taught the operation of the first MCT's when they were assigned only to Sergeants & above. 

Lee taught drivers training & pursuit driving. 

Lee sat on oral boards for prospective Police Recruits.

Lee loved helping out at the BFO  Call-Ins. He was the voice many remember helping them throught it, often joking they should have had their spouse call since they couldn't decide on a shift.

Who can ever forget Lee as the BBQ Chef for our PBA and KK annual events. 

Even in retirement Lee stayed busy. He ran a successful handy man business which really was a carryover from all his years helping people out with fix it jobs that many of us had neither the tools nor the knack to accomplish on our own.

In retirement Lee served on the Gran Jury. As those were confidential proceedings I don't know what cases he was on but believe them to have been serious Civil cases.

Balance that seriousness with his overall friendly and playful attitude he was successful in the areas mentioned here and many more that other friends & associates can attest.

Bill Clark 1772

42nd Annual California Peace Officers’ Memorial

This year marked the 42nd Annual California Peace Officers’ Memorial held at the California State Capitol in Sacramento. Like every year, the emotions are raw as the family of the recently fallen are escorted in. Regardless of rank, patch, or badge, the immeasurable bond that cannot be broken is that thin blue line for all law enforcement officers.

 

Below are a few pictures from this year’s memorial held on May 6th. Taking a moment to honor the fallen cannot be understated. To the men and women of our department who were able to attend this year, we say THANK YOU. The POA would like to recognize several groups and individuals this year for their commitment to honoring every officer that has fallen, including our very own “family”:

 

·     The Emerald Society, which includes current SJPD - Sgt. Dave Woolsey, Officer Mark Alvarez, and led by Retired Sgt. Brian Hyland and Officer Rich Daulton. They continue to grow and excel in their skills. The Emerald Society had an opportunity to play loud and proud as they led the candlelight procession on Sunday evening.

·     The next group we would like to express our gratitude to is members of the SJPD Honor Guard: Captain Dave Santos, Officer Michael O’Brien, Officer Katie Zasly, and Retired Sgt. Thang Le.

·     Also attending was Lt. Rob Imobersteg.

·     Lastly, we must say a special thank you to Sgt. Anthony Kilmer. Anthony is a current POA Board Member and serves on the Board of Directors for the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation. Anthony has been tasked with not only helping organize the statewide memorial, but also escorting the family members of a recent fallen officer. Anthony represented SJPD with such pride, dignity, and honor.

 

Let us never forget our brothers and sisters that have made the ultimate sacrifice and now serve as guardian angels for the warriors that carry on as peacekeepers.

Does your child know what to do if he or she finds a gun?

The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program is a gun accident prevention program that seeks to help parents, law enforcement, community groups and educators navigate a topic paramount to our children’s safety. Eddie and his Wing Team are on a mission to help you teach Pre-K through 4th graders what to do if they ever come across a gun…

https://d20tnjsytapaju.cloudfront.net/media/1441/stop.png?preset=componentImageMedium
STOP!

This first step is crucial. Stopping first allows your child the time he or she needs to remember the rest of the safety instructions.

https://d20tnjsytapaju.cloudfront.net/media/1442/donttouch.png?preset=componentImageMediumDon’t Touch

A firearm that is not touched or disturbed is unlikely to be fired and otherwise endanger your child or other people.

https://d20tnjsytapaju.cloudfront.net/media/1444/run_away.png?preset=componentImageMedium
Run Away

This removes the temptation to touch the firearm as well as the danger that another person may negligently cause it to fire.

https://d20tnjsytapaju.cloudfront.net/media/1445/tell_an_adult.png?preset=componentImageMedium
Tell A Grown-up

Children should seek a trustworthy adult, neighbor, relative or teacher – if a parent or guardian is not available.
