Today we remember the life of fallen #SDPD Officer Denis Allen. EOW:04/02/1977. Officer Denis Allen was shot and killed after he and his partner responded to a disturbance call. When they arrived they discovered a man was attempting to flood his apartment by clogging up the sinks and he was stabbing a block of ice with a knife.

As Patrolman Allen approached the suspect he suddenly pulled out a concealed handgun and shot him in the chest. Both officers returned fire, killing the suspect. Officer Allen succumbed to his injuries. The suspect had been released from jail that morning after serving time for an attempted murder of another police officer.

Thank you Islamic Center of San Diego - ICSD for hosting our Coffee with a Cop. It’s a great day for coffee, conversation, and making new friends. #communitystrong

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Pomona Police Department whose Officer was killed in the line of duty.

A little rain 🌧 didn’t stop Captain Hara from throwing a strike on the first pitch! Thank you to Encanto Little League for having us out for their Opening Day Ceremony. Good luck to all the teams this season. #PlayBall #CommunityStrong

It’s #FeelGoodFriday and we wanted to share an email received about Sgt. Mike Tansey, one of #AmericasFinest : Just wanted to let the San Diego police force know how pleased we are with SGT Mike who was working at Sea World on Tuesday February 27, 2018. We were traveling as a family of 4 grandparents, 2 parents and a 5 year old and 2 year old. Entering the park we were greeted warmly by SGT Mike who spoke to our 5 year old grandson Jack and shook his hand. They chatted for a couple of minutes and Jack was more than happy to talk to this policeman, he welcomed Jack to California from New Hampshire. Mike told him he thought he would love the penguins the best and told us where to find them. Many hours later as we were leaving, Mike was still there and again asked Jack what his favorite animal was. Jack said the penguins!! Unfortunately we did not take a photo of Jack and his new friend but my husband did chat with him both times and thanked him for such a positive interaction. Our two year old grand daughter did not speak to him because she is still shy of people she does not know. Mike gave my husband two stickers of badges and Jack was so very excited. First he put it on his Goofy hat but then decided it was best on his sweatshirt. It stayed there the rest of the week! We did not learn his last name but did want to write to let it be known how proud the department should be of this officer. We look forward to returning to San Diego in the future; great city with great people working there. Sincerely, Susan and Don Corbett Methuen, Massachusetts
