LA County Sheriff's Deputy killed in the line of duty.
Deputy Wally Hannan was sworn in on March 6, 1972 to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Deputy Hannan was killed while responding to an officer needs assistance call. He and his partner were responding with their emergency equipment activated to assist another deputy who had requested assistance. A vehicle pulled in front of Deputy Hannan's patrol car, causing him to take evasive action to prevent hitting the vehicle. He lost control of the patrol car, which struck a metal utility pole killing Deputy Hannan instantly. Deputy Hannan's partner, Deputy Ernie Archuleta was severely injured and was later medically retired.

The Monument

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face.

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years.

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind.

I never dreamed it would be me
And with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for all here from the past
Dear God, let my name be the last.

by Sgt. George Hahn, LAPD (Retired)
