On April 29, 2022, marked the 20th anniversary of the death of Deputy David W. March.
Deputy David March was shot and killed after stopping a vehicle in Irwindale, CA.
Every LASD recruit class recites our creed during the morning procedures at the beginning of the day. Our creed, which was written by Deputy David W. March weeks before he was killed, is now a staple to our department and words we all by.
Recruit Class 461 did a presentation on the anniversary of his death and they were asked what the creed meant to them.
“Our goals are simple
I will always be painfully honest,
Work as hard as I can,
Learn as much as I can and hope-
fully make a difference in people’s
Deputy David W. March
