Photos from Nick Lee’s funeral

Hal Collier was on the case: last week, he sent me some very moving photos of LAPD Officer Nicholas Choung Lee’s funeral (–yes, Hal knew him). As in the case of retired cops, Hal got them from a friend; the friend from a friend of a friend. It took some doing, but Hal was a diligent detective. That’s about the only thing he didn’t do at LAPD, right? But he proved himself here and was able to track down the owner of the photos, ask and receive permission to post them here. I ask that they not be re-used without the permission of the owner, Mike Nelson. Contact me if you need his address.

On March 7th, 2014, Police Officer Nicholas Lee was killed when his patrol car collided with a commercial vehicle at the intersection of Loma Vista Drive and Robert Lane, in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles.

He and an officer he was training were responding to a call when the patrol car collided with the truck carrying a roll-off dumpster at approximately 8:00 am. The other officer and truck driver both suffered critical injuries.

Officer Lee had served with the Los Angeles Police Department for 16 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Mike Nelson’s photos are below:

These K-9's are Belgian Malinois. They are often ribby like the one in the foreground because they are working dogs that need to keep trim. I thought they were underweight the first time I saw one but this is standard.

    Having attended my cop son-in-law’s funeral I know how meaningful and heart-wrenching they can be. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Cop Talk

For all things about cop culture-the work, the family, the days off.

The purpose of this page is to educate writers of all genres to be accurate in their portrayal of law enforcement professionals. This includes meter maids (I was a "lovely Rita" many years ago), dispatcher, patrol officers, detectives, and administrators.

I have many resources in my 35 year career in California law enforcement. I index and explain common errors that found in all media. Guests will also post about police professionalism today and tomorrow as well as historical articles about the way things used to be, "back in the day".

Examples of police media myths: missing persons cannot be reported by anyone but the family; missing persons reports can't be taken until the subject has been missing 24 hours; all cops eat donuts.

You get my drift.
