ALHAMBRA — The community is invited to join the city, the Alhambra Police Department and state Rep. Mike Eng Monday at a ceremony to name a portion of the 10 Freeway for fallen Alhambra police Officer Ryan Stringer.
The 26-year-old Whittier resident died July 10, 2011, when his patrol car collided with another while both were responding to a robbery call in Downtown Alhambra.
At an 11 a.m. ceremony at Alhambra City Hall, 111 S. First Street, state Rep. Mike Eng, D-Alhambra, will join other officials and community members to dedicate a portion of the 10 Freeway in Alhambra as the Officer Ryan Stringer Memorial Highway, Alhambra police Lt. Jennifer Wiese said.
Stringer’s family will be presented with a replica of a freeway sign to be placed on the roadside between Garfield Avenue and Atlantic Boulevard, she added.
Stringer was the fourth Alhambra police officer to be killed in the line of duty in the department’s 108-year history.
