SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento Police Department's boot camp Wednesday honored fallen Davis police officer Natalie Corona who was killed in the line of duty Jan. 10 when a man ambushed her during a traffic accident.
Tianna Camous, like many people at the workout, is interested in working for the Sacramento Police Department. Camous would be following the footsteps of others in her family who she said joined law enforcement to help people.
"Whether it's one of your partners or just the community itself, and it's just a day-to-day job that you can get to help," Camous said.
She said she heard about Corona's death while at work.
"I wouldn't say it scares me, but we've got to know there's always that possibility at anything we're gonna walk up to," Camous said. "Whether we're a civilian or a police officer. It's always that possibility."
It's a reality those in the police force want to remind recruits.
"I think, when we bring the element of some of the officers that have fallen in the line of duty, it brings that reality element to them a little bit, too," said Meghan Gardner with the Sacramento Police Department. "And making sure you fight till the end, what that being in shape can help in the fights that we get in."
