Officer Michael Rainford began his law enforcement career with the Garden Grove Police Department as a reserve officer. He quickly earned the respect and trust of everyone who worked with him; and was noted for his ever present smile and cheerful personality. On November 7, 1980, Officer Rainford was on patrol when he noticed a traffic violation on Harbor Boulevard and followed the violator onto the westbound on-ramp of the Garden Grove Freeway. It was supposed to be a normal car stop for a traffic violation. Officer Rainford never made it to the violator. He was struck by a drunk driver and fatally injured.

Officer Donald F. Reed began his law enforcement career as a Garden Grove police officer in 1977. Officer Reed quickly earned a reputation as a streetwise cop with an expertise in narcotics. On June 7, 1980, Officer Reed and three other officers entered the Cripple Creek Bar to serve a felony arrest warrant on a man in the bar. Officer Reed talked to the subject and began to escort him to the back door to prevent an incident inside the bar. As they walked out the door, the man turned and fired a semi automatic handgun, striking Officer Reed in the chest and fatally wounding him.

On October 6, 1959, Sergeant Myron L. Trapp and other officers responded to a call of an assault with a deadly weapon. A man watching a baseball game on TV was upset with a road crew working on the street in front of his house and fired two shots from a rifle in their direction. Sergeant Trapp tried to talk the suspect out of the house, using a P.A. system. As another officer approached the front door, Sergeant Trapp saw the suspect walking towards the door with the rifle. Sergeant Trapp ran to the front to warn the officer when the suspect fired once through the door. The bullet passed by the officer and struck Sergeant Trapp, fatally wounding him.
