Officer Owen Coleman

Shot in The Line of Duty
January 25, 1926

Officer Owen Coleman was killed in the line of duty in 1926 after serving only 4 months on the Police Force.  Officer Coleman had responded to a disturbance involving several men at the Wilhelm Farm.  While trying to arrest one of the men a struggle began, the lights went out and Coleman fell, mortally wounded.  Very little is known about the incident, as all of the Hollywood Police Department's records were destroyed in the hurricane of 1926.  In fact, no one within the Hollywood Police Department knew of Officer Coleman's existence until 1994.  Upon learning of the Officer's death in the line of duty and confirming the story through other sources, the Hollywood Police Department added Owen Coleman to the Officer's Memorial in the lobby of the Police Station.
