Naming of 10 Freeway after Officer Ryan Stringer moves forward
The California State Assembly passed legislation dedicating part of the 10 Freeway in Alhambra in honor of Officer Ryan Stringer, who died in the line of duty last July. The resolution, coauthored by Assemblyman Mike Eng, would name the portion of the highway between Atlantic Boulevard and Garvey
Avenue after the fallen police officer.
"Once adopted, it is my hope that this resolution will help us always remember Officer Stringer for his commitment to protecting our community and for making the ultimate sacrifice while serving us honorably," said Mike Eng. The legislation will now move onto Senate for further consideration.
Stringer, who was only 26 years old, was killed in an accident on July 10, 2011 when responding to a call for a possible robbery in Alhambra. He will be honored Wednesday at the Alhambra Police Officers’ Memorial Ceremony, when a dedication plaque in his name will be presented on the Police Monument.
