First #Sikh officer with turban in Alameda County 

The officer’s journey began 13 years ago at the 76 gas station that his father Bhupinder Singh still owns at Mission and Tennyson in Hayward.

“I’m really happy. I’m very proud of him,” the elder Singh said.

It was there that 10-year-old Singh met then-Hayward police Capt. Darryl McAllister, who had stopped to get a cold drink.”He always came here and got a drink ,” Bhupinder Singh said. “And my son, the older one, the police officer, he started talking to him.”
