REQUEST FOR HISTORICAL PHOTOS
Sheriffs’ Relief Association has partnered with Moon Mullen supporting his website – the ‘Moon Site’ – as the official retirement site for sworn and civilian retirees of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Our financial support of this site has enabled Moon and his staff to greatly expand the information and content provided to retirees on his site.
One major area of planned ongoing expansion is in the video and media library. They are in the process of collecting historical photos and videos which includes Academy Class photos as well as Roundup photos. Webmaster Rich Wilabee is currently collecting and organizing material into category folders which will hold literally thousands of photos. Moon and his staff are working closely with SRA Board member and the current LASD museum curator, Mike Fratantoni, along with retired photographer, Chris Miller, to gather pictures for the library. You, our members, can provide a significant source of assistance to this project by sending any department historical photos you may have to Moon and Rich Wilabee. Moon recently put out an email to all his members specifically soliciting Academy Class photos and how to forward the same to him (see below). Rich would additionally like your help in providing any other photos you would like to include in his growing library of historical photos. These subject photos can contain, for example, a folder entitled “SEB/ESD” that contain historical photos detailing the history and exploits of this storied unit. Many other special unit folders can also be created if enough photos are submitted to populate them. Otherwise, these photos can be included in general department history folders.
SRA has and will continue to provide financial and technical support to Moon and his staff in support of the ‘Moon’ website and the Roundup. The goal of SRA is to ensure that when Moon is no longer able to support the activities he provides, SRA can step up and manage these functions. In the meantime, we want to encourage you to also step up and help make this the very best law enforcement retirement site in the world. LASD has a rich and proud history and thru this website we can ensure that our history is thoroughly documented and remains intact and fully functional for generations to come.
EMAIL FROM MOON:
In an effort to assist the Department Museum in preserving our history, we are looking for the following Academy Class photos for our website. Any photos we receive, we will share with the Sheriff’s Museum. The Museum has been gracious enough to share many of the pictures that we were missing originally. If you have the pictures on your computer, you can just email them to me. If you have the original and are not sure how to scan the picture, you can mail it to me and I promise to return it to you. Or you can go to your local Costco and they will scan it onto a flash drive which you can then plug into your computer and email to me. If all else fails, ask your grand kids.
Please send the photos in JPG format and not in PDF.
