“Greatness takes hard work. Once you achieve a goal, set a new goal.”
LAPD Police Officer Edwin Marron has always had his heart geared towards protecting and serving his community. In high school, Edwin began working out and training to be physically fit so he could one day protect his community to the best of his abilities. After high school, Edwin joined the Los Angeles Police Academy where he proved his fitness, patience, and ability to defuse tense situations. Being a police officer is more than just a badge and a gun — Edwin wakes up every morning seeking to help the communities he serves understand that the LAPD is here to make a real difference.
