On Monday, February 3, the City of Lancaster unveiled the Sergeant Steve Owen Memorial in honor of a true community hero. The memorial, commissioned by the Mayor and City Council, serves as a forever reminder of Sgt. Owen. Thank you to all those who were a part of establishing this memorial in recognition of Sgt. Owen’s legacy and his impact on our community. Learn4Life students; Sgt. Owen’s family and friends who worked diligently with City staff to initially design the monument; L.A. County Supervisor Barger, who allocated funding for the project; as well as local businesses, organizations, and community members contributed to making the memorial design come to life. We invite everyone to visit Sgt. Owen’s memorial at his namesake park, located at 43063 N. 10th Street West, Lancaster.
The loss of Sgt. Owen was one felt deeply by the Lancaster community, local law enforcement, Los Angeles County as a whole, and even across the State. The Sgt. Owen Memorial Monument truly embodies a man who served his community, and whose legacy will continue to endure for years to come. Let this monument remind all of us of Sgt. Owen’s commitment to our community and the fact that, through our acts of service, we can all live out his legacy.
-R. Rex Parris, Mayor
