California Men’s Colony
The California Men’s Colony (CMC) joined with other local law enforcement agencies in San Luis Obispo County to honor fallen officers during the 2014 Peace Officer Memorial held at the Mission Plaza in downtown San Luis Obispo. Warden Elvin Valenzuela was accompanied by Chief Deputy Warden Josie Gastelo, several members of the CMC Administration and the CMC Honor Guard rifle team.
Lt. Robert Tompkins, the CMC Honor Guard Commander, had the honor of coordinating and directing the commands for the multi-agency honor guard for the 22nd straight year. CMC is honored to be a part of the noble and long-standing tradition of honoring our fallen brothers and sisters.
