By Lt. Rudy Arellano, Honor Guard Commander
California Institution for Women
Sacramento’s California Peace Officers memorial drew law enforcement officers from across the state, including the Honor Guards from the California Institution for Women and the Southern Transportation Unit, including the first all-female rifle team.
California’s first all-female Honor Guard Rifle Team is made up of correctional officers from CIW.
CIW Warden M. Hill has been instrumental in supporting the Honor Guard, providing funeral services, promotional ceremonies and fundraisers.
