October 6, 2018 will be the 47th anniversary of the line of duty death of Officer Henry Acuna. On October 5th, 1971 at 10:05pm Montebello Police Officer Henry Acuna responded to a silent robbery alarm at West Beverly Liquor Store, 2321 W. Beverly Boulevard. Upon his arrival he encountered a suspect exiting the store. The suspect was shielding himself with a 64 year-old female clerk. Upon seeing Officer Acuna, the suspect turned and fired at him. Officer Acuna was wounded and transported to a nearby hospital. Officer Acuna succumbed to his wounds on October 6th, 1971 at approximately 2:45 am. Officer Acuna was only 31 years old when he was killed in the line of duty. He gave his life protecting our fine community and his last act was heroic and selfless. The suspect was apprehended a year later and was convicted of first degree murder. He was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole on July 26, 1973. He has been denied parole several times and our Department will always fight to keep his killer behind bars. Officer Acuna is survived by his wife Jean - who he married in 1963, daughters Kathy and Sandy and his son Joe. Beginning October 6th at 12:01 am and ending October 6th at 11:59 pm, the police station flag will be lowered to half-staff and all MPD uniformed personnel will don black bands across their badges to honor the memory of Officer Henry Acuna.

In September of 2008, Mike was promoted to the rank of Sergeant and returned to the Patrol Bureau. Mike was a Sergeant for 4 years and in that time supervised the Patrol Bureau and Investigations Bureau. In December of 2012, Mike was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and returned to the Patrol Bureau as a Watch Commander.

After more than 35 years of dedicated service to the residents of Montebello, Officer Ernie Barron will retire on September 13, 2018 Ernie began his law enforcement career in 1977, when he joined the Montebello Police Department as a Police Explorer - he volunteered hundreds of hours in the three years that he gave to the program. He is a product of the Montebello School District and grew up in the community. In November of 1980 Ernie was hired as a Park Ranger and worked in that capacity until April of 1983. Ernie was not only committed to protecting the community that he grew up in, he also volunteered to protect our Nation. Ernie served in the United States Marine Corps Reserves from June 1980 to June 1986 and received an honorable discharge. He graduated from the Rio Hondo Police Reserve Academy (Class 37), in June of 1983. He was hired as a Montebello Police Reserve Officer in June of 1983. During his time as a Reserve Officer he achieved the Rank of Senior Officer and Sergeant. He served as a Reserve Officer from June 1983 to September of 2002. In 1997 he was named the “Reserve Officer of the Year”. In 19 years as a Reserve Police Officer, he donated thousands of hours to the community. In 2001, Ernie enrolled in the Rio Hondo Police Academy “Module D course” (Class 10) as he had a desire to become a full time officer. Upon his graduation in September of 2002, he was hired as a full time Police Officer. Ernie worked in the Patrol Bureau and in the Traffic Unit. His reputation of being a team player and always having a positive attitude was contagious. His greatest contribution was his commitment to Montebello Police Explorer Post 1034. He dedicated countless hours to developing young men and women into responsible, motivated and unselfish young adults. He took pride in developing young adults and his legacy will remain in this organization and law enforcement agencies throughout the State, as he mentored countless young adults who went on to become Police Officers. Ernie has received numerous Commendations from Local, State and Federal organizations for his excellent work throughout the years. He also received: • Montebello Police Medal of Merit 1997. The aforementioned does not properly capture the amount of sacrifice and dedication that Ernie has made in providing safety to the residents of Montebello, as well as the contributions that he has made to the Law Enforcement Community. Ernie takes with him over 35 years of institutional knowledge and will be missed. We wish Ernie a long and healthy retirement – which he has certainly earned.
