Special: North side of the 7100 block of Marshfield Way

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.
