Ceremony honors fallen officers

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.

Every year since 1982, members of the US law enforcement community, their families and friends have gathered on Peace Officer's Memorial Day in Washington, D.C.to mourn the fallen and remember their heroic acts.

In opening remarks, Rev. Robert Stephenson with the Springfield Police Chaplains Association said last year an especially hard year.

A total of 145 law enforcement officers across the country died in the line of duty past year, the highest total since 2011.

"It's a very unsafe job, they realize that, the families realize that and this is just a wonderful way to show their appreciation to the families and to the officers themselves", Rigel said.

"When you have a small department like that, everybody is close-knit", he said.

"It doesn't matter that decades of improvement in technology, equipment, and training, have been given to American law enforcement".

The UK Police Memorial is planned for completion in 2019, and its design will incorporate the names of more than 1800 police officers and staff who died from injuries they received in the course of lawful duty since the service began. 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.

So the month of May brings us flowers, good weather and most importantly National Police Week.

The service honors police officers who died in the line of duty.

The exercise was part of the first-ever HOPE (Honoring Our Police in Elgin) Luncheon held Wednesday at the Centre of Elgin. Your kind words of praise and support truly do encourage and motivate us.

"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".

Sonneman said the theme of a legacy of honor was appropriate when thanking the departments on behalf of the Winona County Attorney's office and remembering the Winona County law enforcement who aren't here anymore.
