Deputy Ronald Ives

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department

like that The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department had not lost a Deputy in the Line of Duty for more than nine years, dating back to 1995.

On the afternoon of September 1, that all changed. Deputy Ronald “Ron” Ives was on duty in the City of Rancho Cucamonga, operating his assigned motorcycle, when a vehicle, being driven by Francis James Rawls (60) of San Bernardino ran a red light at Archibald Avenue and Baseline Road, colliding with Ives’ motorcycle. Both Deputy Ives and Mr. Rawls were transported to the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, where both succumbed to their injuries. Ives became the twelfth peace officer, and the fourth motor officer, to die in the line of duty in California during 2004.

Deputy Ives, an eight-year veteran of his Department, graduated from the Sheriff’s Training Academy in early 1996 and was assigned to the West Valley Detention Center. In June, 1999 he was promoted to Deputy II and assigned to Patrol at Rancho Cucamonga Station.

Ron Ives was a native Californian, born in Norwalk. Prior to his entering law enforcement, he had worked for a company that manufactured fire trucks and tow trucks.

Ron was a pillar in the community, where he worked and lived. He was very active in his church and overtly expressing his strong interest in the safety of young people, he organized and presented an annual bicycle rodeo, instructing them in traffic and bicycle safety. He gave each youngster in attendance a free bicycle helmet.

Ron Ives was a patriot and cared deeply about the tragic loss of lives in New York City on September 11, 2001. He voluntarily participated in a 4,000 mile bike ride across the United States, ending at ground zero in New York City. The ride benefited the survivors of public safety personnel who died in the line of duty on 9/11.

In honor and memory of Deputy Ives, the flags that fly over all of the Sheriff’s facilities in San Bernardino County were being flown at half-staff. In keeping with tradition, Governor Schwarzenegger directed that flags that fly over the State Capitol also be flown at half-staff.

On the morning of September 8, more than 3,500 friends and law enforcement officers from throughout the State joined members of the Ives family at the Epicenter Sports Center in Rancho Cucamonga to pay their final respects to a fallen hero.

Ron Ives was eulogized as “an outstanding law enforcement officer. Totally committed to serving the residents of San Bernardino County and a real credit to the Department”. Ron’s younger brother, David, told those gathered “Ron was a ray of sunshine everyday. He always made time for others. He never expected any payment in return; his payment was their smiles”.

At the request of the family, interment was private.

Ron Ives is survived by his wife Karen and his 20-year-old son Blake.

Officer Matthew Pavelka

Burbank Police Department

can you do my homework for me The Burbank Police Department had not lost an officer in the line of duty by gunfire for more than eighty-three years. On the evening of November 15, 2003, that all changed. Veteran Officer, Gregory Campbell had stopped a newer Cadillac Escalade SUV, without license plates, containing two males. The area where the stop was made was well known for drug trafficking and other criminal activity, so Campbell wisely called for backup.

The first officer to respond was 26 year old Matthew Pavelka, who had been in the field as a police officer for just ten months. When Campbell and Pavelka approached the suspect vehicle and ordered the two male subjects to exit the vehicle, they both alighted firing automatic weapons. Both Campbell And Pavelka were wounded several times, but in the ensuing exchange of gun fire, the officers mortally wounded one of the gunmen, 25-year-old Ramon Aranda. The other suspect, later identified as 19-year-old David A. Garcia escaped on foot.

Both of the wounded officers were transported to a local hospital, where Officer Pavelka died during surgery and Officer Campbell was treated and remained in critical but stable condition.

On Friday morning, November 20th, memorial services for Officer Matthew Pavelka were conducted at Forest Lawn, Hollywood Hills. In attendance, in addition to family and friends, were several thousand peace officers from a myriad of jurisdictions.

Officer Pavelka is survived by his father Michael Pavelka, a 29-year veteran detective of the Los Angeles Police Department, and his mother Sue Pavelka.
