Friends and family, I need your help to assist a fellow LAPD Officer who was assigned to Mission Area. Officer Marcial Cruz was diagnosed with cancer last month and has since had his foot amputated due to this terrible disease. Marcial is the sole provider in his household, caring for his wife and two young children. We feel that it is our duty to help a fellow officer, but we can’t do it alone. Next week, on Wednesday, February 19th, from 10am-7pm at the Mission Station, officers and staff members will be hosting a luncheon, raffle, and silent auction for Marcial, with all proceeds going to him and his family.
We are respectfully requesting any assistance you can provide via a donation or an item for the raffle. We would also like to invite you all to this event.
Date: Wednesday, February 19
Time: 11:00 AM – 8:00 PM
LAPD MISSION AREA POLICE STATION
11121 N. Sepulveda Blvd.
Mission Hills, CA
Let me know if and how you can help. I would love to hear from you. THANKS!
SGT Adrian Torres
Since April 2012, Metro has led a successful Veteran’s Hiring Initiative with a goal that 12% of new hires be veterans. As part of this initiative, Metro has participated in numerous career fairs, hosted networking events and collaborated with other organizations in an effort to reach into the veteran community.
Metro will also be utilizing the Los Angeles Veteran’s Survey to help improve outreach efforts and effectively engage with the veteran population. If you or someone you know has served in the military and currently resides in L.A. County, you are encouraged to participate in the survey. Your participation in the survey will help Metro gain greater insight to LA’s veteran population, which will help the agency target its outreach effort in hopes of increasing the veteran representation in Metro’s applicant pools and help Metro continue in growing its veteran workforce.
