Tyler Police Department to hold annual Peace Officer Memorial Service

Tyler Police Department to hold annual Peace Officer Memorial Service

Both citizens and law enforcement gathered to honor the men and women who sacrificed everything for their safety, including CCPD Sgt. Joseph Bock.

During the service, the names of all law enforcement officers from the Mountain State killed in the line of duty since 1863 will be read. The King County Sheriff's Office Memorial, located in the King County Courthouse, honors their sacrifice.

For the full comprehensive data tables about these incidents and brief narratives describing the fatal attacks and selected assaults resulting in injury, see the 2017 edition of Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted report, released Thursday.

If you get a chance this week, take time to thank your law enforcement professionals for serving the Marshalltown community. They will remember him as a kind and hardworking officer who performed his job with a positive attitude. Consider attending one of the many events to be held throughout Idaho this week.

Keith Bradford Sr., Turrell Police Chief helped launch the community's police department in 2012. Next year's report will include Whitesboro Police Officer Kevin Crossley, killed in Oneida County last month while responding to a call. Hours later, he suffered a fatal heart attack. "I think that our local law enforcement and federal law enforcement worked together in an effective way and they saved many lives from what they did". In their profession there is no such thing as an off-duty officer.

"Remember those who not only swore to protect and serve, but they did so".

In 1994, President Bill Clinton directed the USA flag be flown at half-staff that to recognize the day.

Whenever his sees them drive around town, he's always interested in where the vehicle is going, Shaff said, and he loves wearing a SWAT member Halloween costume.

If it sounds hard to go through a day not knowing when a seemingly routine incident will suddenly turn unsafe, then consider what it must be like for the families and loved ones of police officers, who never know if their parent, sibling, spouse, child, will be called into a deadly situation. We need to tell the inspiring stories of these individuals, their heroism, dedication and devotion for which they died.
