National Police Week In Pittsfield Honors Fallen Officers

Fallen police officers to be commemorated at National Memorial Arboretum

Tragically, some lose their lives in the line of duty, and this memorial will honour their courage, dedication and sacrifice.

Keynote speaker and Cherokee County Sheriff Frank Reynolds wiped tears from his eyes as he spoke of the fearless members of law enforcement that are remembered "not by how they died, but how they lived". This year, more than 2,500 people participated in the 3.1 mile race that took runners from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and back via 3 Street Northwest in front of the U.S. Capitol. Some of the surviving family members accompanied the officers.

The peace officer memorial was held at Indian Spring Park Thursday morning.

According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, 143 police officers died in the line of duty previous year in the US.

During the ceremony, City Commissioners John Villarreal and Cesar De Leon and Commissioners Elect Ben Neece and Joel Munguia presented to the police department a proclamation in honor of National Police Week.

The service and sacrifice of all officers killed in the line of duty were honored during the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund's 30th annual Candlelight Vigil May 13 and during the South Dakota Law Enforcement Memorial service May 15.

"Our service is always the Friday of National Police Week", said BPD officer Stewart Beasley.

Lt. Gov. Brad Little also spoke during the service, saying it's honor to serve a state filled with courageous men and women. "As a peace officer, when you leave the house everyday you know that there's a potential that you may have to give your life to the community". "All of those improvements are little consolation to the families, loved ones, and colleagues of those officers who no longer return home at the end of their shift", Wynn says.

"Police officers and staff, are ordinary people doing an extraordinary role to protect their communities".

Bullhead City Police Chief Brian Williamson also used a personal connection to describe what the occasion means to him. "And I never felt that brotherhood and sisterhood stronger than the days that followed Nathan's death".
