    Flags Ordered at Half-Staff in LA County for LASD Recruit Alejandro Martinez

    County Supervisor Janice Hahn ordered flags at half-staff in Los Angeles County in honor of the sheriff’s department recruit #464, Alejandro Martinez, who died last week of injuries sustained after he and 24 other recruits were struck by a wrong-way driver while they ran in formation in Whittier on November 16, 2022. Martinez succumbed to his injuries on Friday at UCLA Medical Center in Westwood.

    The full statement by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department on Friday reads as follows:

    “AdvisoryLos Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Mourns the Loss of Class #464 Recruit Alejandro Martinez

    Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Recruit Alejandro Martinez was hired by the Sheriff’s Department to serve his community. On November 16, 2022, Alejandro was struck by a vehicle as he trained with his partners from Academy Class #464 and fought for his life for the past eight months. Today, Alejandro succumbed to his injuries. Surrounded by his family, friends, Sheriff Luna, and other department members in support of his family, Alejandro has now gone to his eternal resting place. Tragically, he was not able to fulfill his calling of helping others.

    Our condolences go out to Alejandro’s family, friends, and academy classmates. He will forever live in our hearts & never be forgotten.

    Words cannot express the extent of our gratitude to everyone who assisted, and continue to assist, and helped ease the burden of that very difficult day.

    We would like to thank the California Highway Patrol Santa Fe Springs Office, CHP Southern Division Investigative Services and M.A.I.T. – Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigation Team for conducting a comprehensive joint investigation with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau, and the numerous Los Angeles County Fire Department stations and the many health care professionals who provided medical care.

    We are especially thankful for law enforcement Unions, ALADS, PPOA, and LASPA, and all the community members who came together to assist our Department and partner with us in our time of need.”
