Governor honors Galt Police officer killed in crash

On Friday, Gov. Gavin Newsom honored Galt Police Department Officer Harminder Singh Grewal, who died this week as the result of a vehicle crash.

“Jennifer and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Officer Grewal, a devoted public servant who worked selflessly to protect his community. Our thoughts are also with the fellow officer who was seriously injured and is recovering,” Gov. Newsom said.

On Sunday, Aug. 22, while en route to assist with the Caldor fire response in El Dorado County, Officer Grewal’s patrol car was struck head-on by another vehicle, severely injuring Officer Grewal and a fellow officer.

Officer Grewal succumbed to his injuries on Thursday, Aug. 26.

Grewal, 27, served with the Galt Police Department for two and a half years and was named Officer of the Year by the department in 2020.

He was a member of the honor guard and had recently been selected to be a motorcycle officer.

He is survived by his parents, Gurdip and Jaswinder Grewal; brother, Jasdeep Grewal, and sister-in-law, Kirandeep Grewal; and sister, Naudeep Sidhu.

In honor of Officer Grewal, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff.
