Lesley Zerebny, 27, was fatally shot while responding to a domestic disturbance call on October 8, 2016. She had joined the Palm Springs Police Department less than two years before she was killed in the line of duty.
She and her husband, a Riverside County sheriff's deputy, were new parents to a four-month-old baby. Zerebny had recently returned from maternity leave.
"Here you have a wonderful, young, dedicated female officer that pressed forward every day to make it better for everybody else, and she gave her all," police chief Bryan Reyes said.
