On Saturday, February 4, 2012, Recruits from Basic Academy Class 199 and Basic Academy Class 200, along with the Tactical Staff of the Orange County Sheriff’s Regional Training Academy, ran in the 12th Annual “Run for Russ” 5K in the City of Chino.
This run is dedicated to the memory of Officer Russ Miller of the Chino Police Department, who was killed in the line of duty on February 1, 2000.
Miller, a 12 year veteran, was struck by a vehicle while conducting a routine traffic stop. The driver of the suspect vehicle was under the influence of drugs and alcohol and was convicted of their crimes.
The 5K run crosses directly in front of the Russ Miller Memorial, on the corner of 12th and Schaefer.
At the Memorial site, our Academy representatives joined the recruits and staff from the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Academy to complete 25 “Highly Motivated” push ups in honor of Officer Miller.
The Academy also supported the “Bring Jimmy Home” Fundraiser in support of Deputy Robert Pequeno and his family by wearing the fundraiser’s blue wristbands. (see photo below)
