San Bernardino, California, 2016-Sep-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Stater Bros. Charities is pleased to support the San Bernardino Police Department’s Honor Guard by providing new badges and cap pieces which identify participating officers as members of the elite Honor Guard unit.

The San Bernardino Police Department Honor Guard is a group of officers who donate their time to respectfully represent the San Bernardino Police Department and the City of San Bernardino at various events throughout the year, including funerals, memorial ceremonies, academy graduations and opening ceremonies at local community events.

“The San Bernardino Police Department’s Honor Guard is a group of dedicated officers who finance the special equipment they use for the unit out of their own pockets.” said Detective Dennis Houser of the San Bernardino Police Department’s Investigations Bureau-Homicide Unit.  “The addition of the new badges and cap pieces signify the honor and respect the unit holds for the city of San Bernardino and the event in which they are participating. We are very grateful to Mr. Jack H. Brown and the entire Stater Bros. ‘Family’ for their assistance with this project,” he concluded.

“Stater Bros. has and my family has a long history of support for the San Bernardino Police Department,” stated Jack H. Brown, Executive Chairman of Stater Bros. Markets.  “My mother, Rose Brown, served sixty (60) years in the San Bernardino Police Department Reserves.  During the 100th Anniversary of the San Bernardino Police Department in 2005, she retired as the longest-serving reserve police officer in the history of San Bernardino.  She passed away at age 91 in 2011, and I want to continue our support of the great San Bernardino Police Department,” Brown added.
