End of Watch

April 16, 1960

On April 16, 1960, Patrol Inspectors Archie L. Jennings, Robert M. Chaldu, and Gordon G. Hanks were assigned to a traffic checkpoint north of Oceanside, California, checking citizenship status locating deportable aliens and alien smugglers. Inspector Jennings was manning the traffic check at the stop sign when a stopped vehicle was struck from behind by a speeding automobile. On impact, the stopped vehicle knocked Jennings 50 feet and he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
