Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Barry J. Hoffman

I'm not a cop but Barry and I were school friends and belonged to the same car club in the SFV. He was a good guy and left us way too soon. Especially his wife Elaine. I think of them often.

I was on a ride-along with the LA County Sheriff’s deputies that terrible night and ours was the 2nd patrol car to arrive on the scene.
Officer Hoffman was transported to the hospital where I worked. It was very sad to watch the anguished faces of the officer’s colleagues as they visited their friend.
Officer Hoffman was only 24 years old!

As a young cadet in Class 147 I rode with you on my last patrol ride before graduation. After graduation and while fairly new at Men's Central Jail I was assigned to the Jail Ward to guard the juvenile who was involved in the shooting that took your life. My emotions were truly tested as I held back a rage of anger toward this person. Your memory and life will remain with me forever, you will never be forgotten.

Rest in Peace.

I was your swamper as an off the streeter when you were at TST and later we served together at Lennox.

Thanks for mentoring me through the academy.

Deputy Hoffman,

Tonight was the last shift at Lennox Station. You were the first taken from our Lennox Family and once again honored with Full Class A Uniform worn by all station personnel and alumni going 10-8 for the last time. It was an honor to hear your name during our final roll call. The station name and location has changed, but you will not be forgotten Brother. RIP

I was a 2 year Reserve Deputy at Lennox Station when Barry was killed in Lawndale. I was supposed to work that night and was diognosed with the flu. Called in sick (rare)and was later advised that Barry worked the car I was supposed to work. True or not....? It left an everlasting impression on a young, in-experienced Reserve Deputy at the time, that will never be forgotten. It would be the first of many untimely deathes of Deputies I knew that payed the ultimate sacrafice for the citizens of Los Angeles County. God bless you and yours Barry. Rest in peace my Brother.
