Police Officer Jeffrey Lindenberg was killed when the helicopter he was training in lost power and crashed while landing.

Officer Lindenberg was flying in a Bell 47-G5 helicopter and was practicing simulated urban high-rise rooftop landings by at an off-site pad on top of a small mountain near the Los Angeles Zoo in the hills above Hollywood. On short final approach, the engine lost power and the helicopter impacted four inches short of the pad. The helicopter rolled 162 feet down the mountain side and exploded. Officer Lindenberg was killed and another officer was seriously injured.

Officer Lindenberg had served with the Los Angeles Police Department for seven years. He was survived by his wife and seven-month old daughter.

I worked with Jeff while he was at ASD, I remember him as an all-around " great guy". He was dedicated, professional and a pleasure to work with. His sudden death was a shock to all of us. After all of these years we still remember his legacy of excellence and service, as an example for us to follow. Jeff you gave your life in pursuit of making the world a better place for us all. RIP
