The California Peace Officers' Memorial was held in Sacramento this past week. The LEOs you're seeing are going home.

May have been traffic from the Memorial this week.

It can be on an on/off duty basis; it depends on what the command staff allow.

A lot of CA LEOs, current and retired, are going to the D.C. memorial as well.

If you have never been, you should go. Even as a civilian. It is a neat thing to see and never a dry eye in the room.

Most are on their own time but being allowed to use Department vehicles. Could not go this year but I have several friends whose names are on the memorial.
