Eight Fullerton PD officers honored for number of DUI arrests made in 2014

The memory will stay with him forever.
Timothy Gibert was a rookie officer still in training with the Fullerton PD in 2010 when he responded to a serious traffic accident.
A man who had been drinking had lost control of his car and crashed, injuring his girlfriend in the passenger seat.
On the way to UC Medical Center, Gibert phoned the 21-year-old woman’s parents to tell them what had happened. At the time, Gibert believed the young woman likely would survive.
But Gibert watched her die at the hospital.
“That call will stick with me for a long time – probably forever,” Gibert, 27, said Tuesday night.
