Officer Marcus Pesquera

Officer Pesquera was in training when early one morning, he and his fellow officer approach a few individuals who appeared to have suspicious behavior. Officer Pesquera’s quick thinking saved the lives of both men. Unfortunately, his fellow officer was critically wounded but Officer Pesquera was able to save both lives. He volunteers in his community at the firing range and his skills enabled him to protect the citizens of San Bernardino.
