As the year of 2017 almost comes to an end, the SFAPOA has just learned of the passing of Herb Lee, the first Asian American, to join the San Francisco Police Department.

Herb Lee was an inspirational role model for many Asian Americans who in later years followed in his footsteps in getting into a career as a police officer in San Francisco.

Herb Lee will be missed dearly and may he rest in peace knowing that his ground breaking legacy of having more Asian Americans in policing has continued on.

Funeral services for Herb Lee are on Saturday, November 11 2017, at Duggan’s Serra Mortuary (500 Westlake Avenue, Daly City, CA 94014). The viewing will be at 1000 hours and the services will be at 1100 hours.

The SFAPOA encourages our members (past and current), including our friends, to attend if you can to pay tribute to a local pioneer for the Asian American Community and show your support to his grieving family.

 

Thank you.
