Please take a moment to remember fallen Officer Benjamin F. Bish who died in the line of duty 124 years ago today.

While checking the alley just west of Tejon St., Officer Bish came across two men attempting to break into the rear of a store. Officer Bish was escorting the two men out of the alley when one of them drew a gun and shot, mortally wounding Bish. It was later learned the weapon used by the suspects was taken during the assault of another officer, the previous week.
