On July 23, Police Chief Ed Varso presided over a ceremony at the flagpole in front of Escondido Police & Fire Headquarters to remember Officer Laura. Officer Laura was tragically murdered by her husband in 2014 cutting short a career she’d always admired. Six years later, officers and family gathered to remember the service she provided to this community. Her daughter (Suzeth), her sister (Alondra), and her mother (Susana) were all in attendance. There is an engraved rock at the base of a tree near the fountain dedicated to Officer Laura and all victims of domestic violence.
