More than 30 years after it was dedicated, few people remembered that Derby Park had been named to memorialize Santa Cruz Police Sgt. Charles Derby, who was a beloved mentor to a generation of at-risk youth, and who died in 1972. This memorial was commissioned and was erected when the park was recently rededicated honoring his contribution to the Santa Cruz community.
