Today we remember a fallen hero...
Today we remember Sergeant Emmett L. Elmore, a veteran of 23 years of police and traffic officer service. Sergeant Elmore received his promotion in rank to sergeant less than one year before his death. Elmore, 62, had joined the Stanislaus County Traffic Squad in 1925 and became a CHP officer when the California Highway Patrol absorbed the county units in 1929. Sergeant Elmore died due to a duty related illness on July 18, 1942, while assigned to Stanislaus.
