Remembering a Fallen Hero, OCSD Deputy Steven Parsons

Today we remember a fallen hero, OCSD Deputy Steven Parsons.

Deputy Parsons joined OCSD in 1989 and would become the first motorcycle patrolman in the city of Laguna Hills in 1997. In his nomination for the coveted Gold Star Award merely two and a half weeks prior to his death, Deputy Parsons was lauded as "having single-handedly impacted traffic safety resulting in significant decreases in traffic accidents." On June 24, 2000 Deputy Parsons passed away after being involved in a traffic collission in the city of Laguna Hills while on motorcycle patrol. He was, and will continue to be, a role model for all.
