Deputy Randy Hamson succumbed to injuries he sustained after being struck by a car on Saturday, August 16, 2004. Randy had been with the Department for just over five years when the accident occurred. Sadly, Randy becomes the third deputy to be killed in the line of duty in Santa Clarita Valley Station's history.
On that date Deputy Hamson was conducting a follow-up investigation for a traffic collision that had occurred earlier in the shift on Sierra Highway. It was in the late evening hours, and the portion of the road where they were conducting their investigation was poorly lit. Randy saw a vehicle driving with its headlights off and used his flashlight in an attempt to get the driver's attention. As Randy's attention was drawn to that vehicle, he stepped forward and was suddenly struck by another vehicle coming toward him. The driver of the vehicle that struck Randy never saw him before the collision occurred.
Randy was rushed to the hospital and treated for a significant head trauma and other injuries. In October of 2004, he was transferred to Casa Colina Hospital, a long term care facility in Pomona. Randy remained in their care until death became imminent last week. Then this afternoon, October 24th, Deputy Randy Hamson passed away.
Randy joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on March 23, 1999, and graduated the Sheriff's Academy on August 27, 1999. He worked at Pitchess Detention Center - East Facility, until April of 2003, and then began his patrol service at Santa Clarita Valley Station in April of 2003.
Randy will always be remembered as a diligent and hard working deputy. He was admired and respected by his fellow protectors, and the community. He was a great partner, public servant, and friend. He will truly be missed.
Up until the time of the accident, Randy resided in Simi Valley California with his wife and their three children. Randy is also survived by his parents Jim and Carolyn Hamson, who reside in Paso Robles, his brother Tim Hamson, who is a Los Angeles City Fire Fighter and former Los Angeles Police Department member, and his brother Mike Hamson, who resides in Washington.
His wife Cindy said what Randy always wanted to do was protect and serve the public -- like many, he lost his life fulfilling that dream. Randy was be buried with full honors Thursday during ceremonies at Eternal Valley Memorial Park.
