Our hearts and thoughts are with the family, friends, and colleagues of Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Darnell Calhoun, who was killed in the line of duty after responding to a domestic violence call on Friday, Jan. 13.
Calhoun is the second Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy killed in the line of duty in two weeks. Deputy Isaiah Cordero was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Dec. 29.
These horrific incidents serve as a stark reminder of the importance of voluntary blood donation and community members coming together to protect our local blood supply. Few understand more about the necessity of a safe, ample community blood supply than our local law enforcement.
In 2021, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputy Dustin Whitson was shot in the line of duty. LifeStream blood donors were part of the incredible team who saved his life.
Recently, Deputy Whitson shared what blood donation means to him and his family. Watch his story below.
