CHP Captain Mike Maskarich welcomes the family of Officer Dale M. Krings, friends and dignitaries who gathered on May 17, 2013, for a ceremony to name a scenic rest area after Officer Krings, who died in the line of duty in May 1962. The recently refurbished rest area on northbound Interstate 280 near Hillsborough, which is now also home to a CHP substation, was named after the fallen officer pursuant to Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 100, which Senator Jerry Hill and his colleagues in the Assembly passed in 2012. The passages honoring Krings were introduced in May 2012 on the 50th anniversary of Officer Krings' final shift with the CHP.
