I attended the services for Officer Tonn yesterday and learned a bit more about his life and how he lived it. A very sad day for all of us, and a great loss to our society. May he forever rest in peace.
Having worked at CHP for 12 years, and still having friends work there, I have been to a lot of cop funerals over the years. Yes, a lot of cops from other agencies do show up to pay respects. It’s always very impressive. I was working at CHP when my dad died, and even though they were not allowed to escort him to the cemetery, a lot of them followed him to the cemetery.
Sac County Sherrifs graciously provided law enforcement in Galt so that Galt officers could attend services. I didn’t attend the services but watched online. The Galt Chief of Police speech was very moving.
