This morning, through Elk Grove Police Department's public information officer, the family of Officer Tyler Lenehan issued a statement on the tragic death of the six-year police veteran. Lenehan was killed in the line of duty early Friday morning when an alleged impaired motorist operating his vehicle in the wrong direction on Highway 99 in Sacramento collide with Lenehan who was on his police motorcycle. 

Statement from the Lenehan Family

Our family is deeply heartbroken and devastated by the tragic loss of our husband, father, son and brother. Ty is survived by his wife, Jessica, two children Austin and Sydney, his parents and three siblings. Ty was a bright light of personality in our family. His life outside of being a committed officer to the Elk Grove community was dedicated to serving his family and his church community. Ty performed innumerable acts of charity and kindness and blessed many lives with his personality, love and humility.

While we are deeply saddened as we mourn the loss of such a great person, we have been lifted by the support from the Elk Grove Police Department, the Sacramento Police Department, the Governor, and our Sacramento community. We appreciate the many condolences, the outpouring of love, and the support from the community at large. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the first responders and hospital staff who immediately attended to Ty’s injuries.  

At the behest of the Lenehan family, EGPD PIO Sgt. Jason Jimenez also said "they do not wish to speak publicly and we ask that you please respect their privacy as they grieve. 

Funeral arrangements are pending, and once they are available, the EGPD will release details. An official memorial fund has been established for the Lenehan family and contributions can be made at this site.
