The 28th Annual Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Ceremony will take place Tuesday, May 12th at 11:30am at 1100 W Mallon. Fortunately this year, we will not be adding any new names to the memorial but will be adding the name of a forgotten officer, Deputy Sheriff James M Bennett from Chelan County Sheriff’s Office in Washington State. His End of Watch was Friday, July 14th, 1911. We will also have a presentation to honor Medal of Honor Recipient William Davis.
The Spokane Law Enforcement Memorial honors all law enforcement officers who have died or been killed in the line of duty in Washington State. These officers paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives and left families which their respective communities continue to support. It is our job to remember. Please join us in honoring their service. Spokane Police Department’s Assistant Chief Rick Dobrow will be the guest speaker.
The memorial for fallen officers will be culminated by a Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday, May 13th at 8pm presented by the Spokane Chapter of the Behind the Badge Organization. The Spokane Police Department and Spokane County Sheriff’s Offices welcome the public to attend these events.
Officer John O'Brien
