To Patricia Berni and others who may need to contact the family of Officer Charles Hallenbeck

I am the daughter of Charles Hallenbeck and unfortunately, had not seen this posting. The good news is that the LAPD has been in contact with my mother, Patricia Hallenbeck-Bowley and will be accepting this beautiful, heartfelt award on behalf of my father. My brothers, Charles (Rick), Jeff, and myself, along with our family members will also be in attendance.

Please know that you should contact my mother, my brothers, or myself for any future ceremonies or tributes to our father as this is very personal to our family.

To Detective III Julie Scruggs and other law enforcement individuals on this page who took the time to acknowledge our father, thank you so much for your kind words. Your words truly mean a lot to our family.

Proud daughter of Officer Charles Hallenbeck
