Ceremony honors fallen officers
Chief Justice Gerald VandeWalle said people could honor fallen law enforcement officers by supporting police, training them well, avoiding creating unsafe situations and having good discipline policies that hold officers that do act badly accountable.
Immediately following the ceremony at the courthouse, officials will unveil a plaque in the main lobby of the police station commemorating two Bradenton police officers killed in the line of duty, Steve Bennett (1934) and Carl Cox (1970). People like you make the world a better (and much safer) place.

Please take a moment this week, especially upon seeing a flag at half-staff, to think of those that truly do live to serve you. "I feel the community has a duty to honor them, when they take care of all of us".
A wreath was placed at the Troy Police Department during the ceremony and another at Bicentennial Park after the ceremony.

"Officers across the country, including those in Greater Manchester, go out every day not knowing what situation they will face but remaining committed to protecting the communities that they serve".
