IBEW LU 595 along with Electrical Workers Minority Caucus Northern California Chapter, provided skilled Labor to helped erect the Alameda Police Departments' Fallen Officer Memorial. This was done to honor two officers who died in the line of duty. Deward Burton Gresham in 1942 and Robert James Davey, Jr in 1983.
This gave all involved an opportunity to give back and to let the public at large know who we are and what we are about as Trade Unionist. Giving back to the Community. We know that through helping others, we help ourselves.
The project consisted of low voltage, recessed, concrete encased lighting to illuminate two bust of the slain officers. We also provided lighting for a new flag pole, a backlit sign and lighting for an angel sculpture. The Memorial is particularly stunning at night.
Special Thanks to John Agnitsch, Earl Hampton, Gustavo Vega, Jason Bates, Rachel Bryan, Louisa Sanders, Eddie Hanson, Randy Williamson of LU 617 and Ron Lewis of LU 6.
