AND TRAFFIC CLOSURE INFORMATION
Memorial services for Oxnard Police Officer Nathan Martin will be held on Friday, February 7th. Services will begin at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1201 Paseo Camarillo, CA 93010. Friends and co-workers are invited to pay their respects to Officer Martin inside the Relief Society Room of the church from 9:30-10:30 a.m. The viewing will be followed by a public memorial service inside the main chapel beginning at 11:00 a.m.
In respect to the family’s wishes, video recording by media will not be permitted inside the chapel during the ceremony. A staging area for media personnel will be available in the Constitution Park parking lot east of the church.
Immediately following the church service, a procession to include Officer Martin’s family and Oxnard Police Department personnel will move to a graveside service at Conejo Mountain Memorial Park located at 2052 Howard Road, Camarillo, CA 93012. Additional friends, co-workers, and law enforcement personnel are invited to drive directly to the cemetery after the procession has left the church.
Paseo Camarillo will be closed between Lantana Street and Carmen Drive on February 7, 2020 from 8:00 am through 3:00 pm due to a large anticipated funeral attendance at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Community members wishing to attend the event are encouraged to carpool, as there is limited parking at the church and cemetery. Those attending must enter Paseo Camarillo from Lantana Street, as the Carmen Drive entrance will not be open. The VCTC bus service on Paseo Camarillo will not be available during the hours of 12:30 p.m. through 2:30 p.m. due to the funeral activities. If possible, please avoid the area to reduce traffic congestion.
Please continue to keep Officer Martin’s family, friends, and coworkers in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
