Remembering Pomona Police Officer Officer Daniel Fraembs

Remembering Pomona Police Officer Officer Daniel Fraembs
End of Watch: Saturday, May 11, 1996 

Pomona Police Officer Daniel Fraembs was shot and killed while checking on three suspicious subjects, two male gang members and a female, in an industrial area of Pomona on May 11, 1996.

As Officer Fraembs patted down the first male suspect the second man was able to draw a .45 caliber handgun and fatally shot Officer Fraembs.  The gang member responsible was captured and sentenced to death in 1997.
 
Looking back at Officer Daniel Fraembs childhood, he was destined for a career in law enforcement.  Daniel was found orphaned on a beach in Hong Kong and taken into an orphanage by a local policeman. At nine months old, he was adopted by Donald and Dorothy Fraembs of Cincinnati, Ohio, and became a citizen of the United States in 1963. He rose to the rank of sergeant during four years in the U.S. Marine Corps until receiving an honorable discharge, and 3 years later, in 1988, started his appointment to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.  He worked with the Sheriff's Department for 5 years, before joining the Pomona Police Department. 

We will never forget Officer Daniel Fraembs.
