End of Watch


I’ll be honest and say that I have never heard of this term until this week. On 09.05.12, California Highway Patrol Officer Kenyon Youngstrom succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained on the previous day while making a traffic stop. Officer Youngstrom was a hero in many people’s eyes, to me… Ken was also my friend. I am close friends with several CHP Officers and of the Youngstrom family which allowed me to be close during this tough time. The following are a few images from a photo essay I created after Ken’s End of Watch. Clicking on any of the images below will take you directly to the Photo Essay.

A CHP motorcade led by a couple dozen mounted officers stage to escort Officer Kenyon Youngstrom’s body to St. Helena.

Law Enforcement officers from across the country pay their respects.

These are the agency patches I was able to photograph… I am sure I missed quite a few of them.
