Fallen Elk Grove motor officer Tyler Lenehan will be remembered in the city he served, in the department where his fellow officers mourn and on the highway where he lost his life. Tyler Lenehan served six years as an Elk Grove motor officer after stints with Galt and Citrus Heights police. The Elk Grove posting was his dream assignment, a dream cut short the morning of Jan. 21, 2022, by a suspected drunken wrong-way driver on his way to work. Lenehan was 44 years old. He left behind a wife and two children.
