On July 1, 2021 the officers were sent to a despondent man. The girlfriend of the man had called police reporting that the man had made a social media post threatening self harm.
When the officers arrived they located the man in the backyard pointing a gun to his own head. The officers started a positive dialogue with the man and ultimately were able to convince the man to put the weapon down. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Nice work to both officers and we appreciate you both. On this Sunday we honor these officers and glorify the one and only God who saves all. Psalm 68:20

Today’s (July 21) #Honor post goes to Sgt. Craig Hentcy with the La Habra Police Department for serving so many in so many roles for 25 years.
Sgt. Hentcy began his public service as a volunteer firefighter then served 5 years with LAPD. His career in law enforcement took him to Whittier PD for 7 years and the last 13 years at La Habra PD.
As he began his career as a volunteer firefighter he continues that volunteer role as a member with La Habra Police Memorial Foundation, Inc. Their goal and focus is on supporting surviving family members of officers killed in the line of duty. Sgt. Hentcy is a servant at heart and we appreciate his service in all he has done.
To celebrate Sgt. Hentcy we will be sending a check to the La Habra Foundation in the amount of $250.00 in honor of Sgt. Hentcy. Keep up the great work brother.

On July 18, 2021 the officers were sent on a call involving a woman being held against her will. When they arrived they could hear the woman screaming for help. The officers forcing the door open found the woman badly beaten and physically distraught. The woman who is 25 weeks pregnant told the officers she met the suspect recently and they drove to Galveston. When she tried to leave the suspect began assaulting her.
The suspect was also located and arrested and charged with kidnapping and assault.
The decisive actions from both officers saved the woman’s life. The officers were referred to as heroes and we agree. We appreciate you both.
