The memorial service for Officer Robert French, the Sacramento Deputy who was shot during a hotel shootout last week is happening today, followed by a funeral procession. It’s going to start around 11am in Roseville at Adventure Christian Church on Stanford Ranch Road. After the service, the procession will begin, heading down Highway 65, up 80, and then down into Granite Bay, ending at Bayside Church. There will be heavy traffic and rolling road closures along the route, seen here, from about 1:15 to 2:15 today, Setember 7th.
After the funeral, there will be a 21-gun salute in the area, as well as a helicopter flyover. Roseville police are reminding people that you can watch, but they say to park in a safe area, not along an overpass.
Our thoughts are with the family of the fallen Officer, as well as his work family who lost a great father, son, friend, and partner.
