On behalf of the Seaside Police Department, we would like to thank those who attended the remembrance gathering on February 5, 2018 to reflect on the two-year anniversary of Sgt. Jason Goodding’s line-of-duty death. Several members of the community came out and braved our coastal drizzle, while paying respect to Sgt. Gooding’s life and legacy. We would also like to thank those police officers from other communities who were gathered with us. We thank you for your continued dedication and service to others.
The SPD knows and appreciates the support our community has shown over the years. Our department would not have been able to begin the healing process without the help of many professionals and the overwhelming support our citizens have given to us. Your understanding and patience has allowed us to know that your support is always there, even when we cannot see it.
As a member of the department which had to personally face this horrific event, the shock and recovery thereafter, I know that our journey is far from over. However, we will continue to grow from this and become even stronger in our service and dedication to our profession, and to those we swore to protect. Thank you to our community for being there for us. We do need you and greatly appreciate your unwavering support.
Bruce Holt, Lieutenant
Seaside Police Department
