I also heard that SFPD officers - working in Oakland the day of the fallen OPD officer's funeral - to allow all OPD officers to attend the funeral - donated all their overtime funds back to the Oakland PD officer association.

Why did this get out so late? We could have gone if there was enough time to plan for it. Why report about somthing to try and raise support and not give enough time to do so???? I have lost P.D. freinds and would have loved to have gone. I will still donate to support them and all that they do for all of us.

FYI - There is also an event in Oakland on Saturday at the Warehouse to benefit the families of the OPD officers. Tickets are $20. There will be a silent auction (in which many Pleasanton businesses donated items) as well as a live auction.
