Hi, my name is Arlene Lum of the Oakland Chinatown Chamber Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. We are fundraising for Oakland Police Officer Tuan Le. Currently, this is the only GoFundMe page approved by Officer Le's family.

Officer Tuan Le was killed in the line of duty responding to a burglary on the morning of Friday, December 29, 2023. He was a dedicated public servant, loving husband, and cherished member of the Oakland community. He was a proud Vietnamese American who was born in Saigon, Vietnam in 1987 before moving to Oakland. He graduated from Oakland High School and San Francisco State University.

Officer Le graduated from the 183rd Oakland Police Academy on February 21, 2020, where he devoted himself to serving as a bridge between law enforcement and the community. For the past two years, Officer Le served as the Community Resource Officer (CRO) in West Oakland. As a native Oaklander who loved his city, his tireless efforts fostered positive relationships and made a lasting impact. Recently, Interim Police Chief Darren Allison recognized Officer Le with the John Grubensky Award for helping to save a life. He will be remembered as a hero who dedicated his life to making the Oakland community safer and bringing positive changes. His family, friends and colleagues will always remember him for his upbeat spirit, bringing laughter to those around him and for being a dedicated family man.

He is survived by his wife, mother, and two dogs.

Carl Chan, President of the Oakland Chinatown Chamber Foundation, recalls seeing Officer Le during his volunteer assignments in Oakland Chinatown and Little Saigon. "Officer Le's passing leaves a void not only to his family, but also in the community he serves", says President Chan.

100% of funds raised will be donated to support Officer Le’s wife and family. Your contributions through the Oakland Chinatown Chamber Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Our EIN # is 37-1433643. At the conclusion of this campaign, the Oakland Chinatown Chamber Foundation will deliver a check with the net proceeds to the family.
