Representatives from Avenal State Prison (ASP) recently joined thousands of other law enforcement officials to show support to the Hayward Police Department, an agency reeling from the loss of one of their own.
During an early morning traffic stop, Hayward Police Sgt. Scott Lunger, 48, was shot and killed July 22.
ASP paid its respect to Sgt. Lunger at the Oracle Arena where thousands of Law Enforcement agencies from around the state and country gathered to celebrate the life of someone who made the ultimate sacrifice for his community of Hayward and the State of California.
