Sgt. Ron Helus Memorial Fund.

Sgt. Ron Helus, one of the first officers to respond to a call of a shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California was among the 12 victims killed in the incident.

"He gave his all. Tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero. He went in to save lives, to save other people.” Said Sheriff Dean.

Helus, 54, is survived by a son and his wife, whom he called before responding to the shooting.

“He said, ‘Hun, I got to go. I love you. I gotta go on a call,'”

The nonprofit run by ex military and police veterans Blue Alert US, will be raising funds to the Sgt. Ron Helus Memorial Fund. Blue Alert US work to bring support to the families of fallen officers. The unexpected loss of life & loss of everyday function puts a strain on these families.
