Today we remember the life and service of fallen San Jose Police Officer Jeffrey Fontana. Officer Fontana was gunned down while making a routine traffic stop early in the morning on an Almaden street. Fontana was only on the police force a few months before his murder. (you can read more about Officer Fontana here).
"... In legal terms, the city conceded that Measure B was a mistake, an error, a massive foot fault. The council agreed to ask a judge to invalidate it, to brand it formally as incorrectly designed law." Read the full story on the San Jose Mercury News by clicking here.
On August 6th we remember fallen San Jose Police Officer Richard Huerta. On August 6, 1970, Officer Huerta was killed by gunshots from a pedestrian intent on randomly killing any officer he encountered.
Below is the department’s official account of his story.
