A memorial service for two California Highway Patrol officers killed early Monday morning in an accident near Kingsburg will be open to the public, CHP spokesman Axel Reyes confirmed Thursday.
The service for Juan Jaime Gonzalez, 33, and Brian Mitchio Law, 34, will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at the Save Mart Center in northeast Fresno.
Later Monday, Officer Gonzalez will be buried at Tulare North Cemetery. In anticipation of a high volume of vehicles headed to the cemetery, some roads in the city of Tulare will be temporarily closed between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m., the Tulare Police Department said.
The closures will be at the intersection of westbound Cartmill Avenue at M Street and J Street from Cartmill Avenue to Highway 99, police said.
On Thursday, the state Assembly adjourned in memory of Gonzalez and Law. Assembly Member Jim Patterson, R-Fresno, talked about the two officers, their friendship and their service to the community prior to the adjournment at the Capitol in Sacramento.
