Taft Police are mourning the loss of one of their own.

The department will pay tribute to Ocegueda with an "end of watch radio" broadcast Monday at 7 p.m.

Ocegueda, who joined the Taft Police Department in 2016, was remembered on the department Facebook page as “a kind and caring person who always had a smile on his face.” 

Ocegueda, who also worked at the University of Southern California, is survived by his wife and four children.
