Join us for the 50th Anniversary of Fallen SMPD Sgt. Joinville- Today 5/23 at 3PM

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the day our San Mateo Police Department and Community lost Sergeant Gordon Joinville, who was killed in the line of duty.  As part of our commitment to never forget Sergeant Joinville’s sacrifice, we will be honoring him as we do every year at the site where he made the ultimate sacrifice for our community. The memorial will be tomorrow May 23rd, 2018, at 3 p.m. at the intersection of 5th Av and Claremont St. We welcome our community to come to the event and support Sgt. Joinville’s family and SMPD as we pay tribute.
We would also like to inform our community to expect traffic delays in the area of the memorial (5th and Claremont) starting at 11 a.m. to about 5 p.m. Officers will have 5th Ave between Railroad and Claremont closed temporarily during the event. We appreciate our community’s support and patience during this time.
