On May 10, 2006, seven police officers killed in the line of duty while working for the LAPD's Hollywood division were memorialized with a special star on the Walk of Fame.
"I can't think of a more fitting tribute to these fallen officers than to have their sacrifices memorialized at the entrance of the Walk of Fame," said then-LAPD Chief William J. Bratton at the ceremony. "Everyone who visits this great tourist mecca will be reminded that within the galaxy of Hollywood Stars there is a special constellation."
The star, sponsored by the Hollywood Historic Trust, bears the names of Officer Charles Dean Heim, who died in 1994; Officer Joe Rios, who died in 1993; Det. Russell Lee Kuster, who died in 1990; Officer Robert Joseph Cote, who died in 1969; Officer Ian James Campbell, who died in 1963; Officer Clay Noble Hunt, who died in 1955; and Officer Clyde Pritchett, who died in 1936.
