The MATT REDDING FOUNDATION

Written by John and Marilyn Redding

Matt became a Rocklin Police Officer in 2001.  He was dedicated to keeping our community a safer place for all of us to live.  Matt was a firearms instructor for his department and a member of The Rocklin/Roseville SWAT Team.  He specialized in drug and alcohol detection.  Matt was the recipient of the MADD Award, LIfe Saving Award and the Bronze Medal of Honor.  Matt loved is job, his family and the community he grew up in.  Matt's life was cut short while on duty with the Rocklin Police Department, by a drunk driver October 9, 2005.  We cherish the memories we shared together.  His death has created a void in our lives that cannot be filled.

We wanted to keep Matt's name alive in this community by doing good things.  The concept of this Foundation started the week of October 9, 2005 by personal donations and has continued by fund raiser and donations over the past 9 plus years.
