Thank You Officer Dan Cabral ! Each year, the graduating Senior Class of Granada High School is asked to select those individual’s that the seniors want to participate in their graduation ceremony.

Officer Cabral has been the SRO for Granada High School since the beginning of the 2006/2007 school year.

When officers arrived on the scene, a fifth-wheel trailer was fully engulfed in flames and the neighboring trailer was also on fire.

News ImageShots Fired
On May 14, 2015 at 12:51 a.m., LPD officers were dispatched to the area of Chestnut Street and North I Street for a report of shots heard. Officers arrived on scene and while canvassing the area, the officers saw an unknown male, approximately six feet tall, shirtless with blue jeans, walking east on Chestnut Street. The officers attempted to make contact with the male in order to rule out his involvement with the dispatched call for service. While attempting to make contact, the unknown male continued walking east on Chestnut Street, eventually turning north onto North I Street where he quickly ducked behind a vehicle. As one of the officers approached the male and prepared to make contact, the male suddenly turned and without provocation fired multiple gunshots at the officer.
