Murder of the Lakewood Four

On November 29, 2009, the Lakewood Police Department experienced one of the most traumatic losses in American law enforcement history. On that day a convicted felon on parole from Arkansas walked in to the coffee shop where four Lakewood Officers were on a break. The suspect entered with the singular purpose of murdering the officers. When the incident was over, four officers lay dead and one of the largest manhunts in history ensued. Assistant Chief Zaro will bring the facts of the incident, the lessons learned, and the effects on the department over the five years that followed.
