Bill Summary

H.R. 5948 designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 830 Kuhn Drive in Chula Vista, California, as the “Jonathan ‘J.D.’ De Guzman Post Office Building.”

Background

Serving as a San Diego Police Officer, Jonathan “J.D.” De Guzman was committed in his efforts to police and protect his local community. Tragically, in July of 2016, Officer De Guzman was gunned down in the line of duty and he and his partner were attempting to question an individual who has since been charged with the homicide. Congresswoman Davis introduced this legislation as a means to pay proper tribute for Officer De Guzman’s sacrifice and dedicated service as a member of the San Diego Police Department.[1]

“Officer De Guzman is no longer with us but we can ensure that his name lives on,” according to the bill’s sponsor. “He made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting our community. This bill will mean that future generations will know and understand the commitment Officer De Guzman and all our law enforcement officers make on behalf of San Diegans.”[2]
