ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – Thousands of law enforcement officers from around the region gathered to remember fallen Sacramento Police Officer Tara O’Sullivan on Thursday.

A procession for Officer O’Sullivan made its way from Elk Grove to Bayside Church’s Adventure Campus in Roseville.

Officer O’Sullivan was shot and killed while responding to a domestic violence call last week. She was just 26-years-old and had only been with the department for less than a year.

“Please know that Tara made a big difference in just a short amount of time,” said Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn.

She was the first Sacramento police officer killed in the line of duty in 20 years.

Officers from around the country came for Officer O’Sullivan’s memorial.

“She was someone who devoured life,” said Gary Roush, O’Sullivan’s Godfather, at the memorial service.

A second procession is happening after the ceremony as O’Sullivan’s casket will be brought back to Elk Grove – making a stop in the Del Paso Heights area where she was assigned.
