Memorial to Fallen Law Enforcement Officers in Washington State

Sgt. Terry Preuninger, PIO

The Spokane Police Academy would like to invite you to attend the dedication of the “Memorial to Fallen Law Enforcement Officers in Washington State” at the Spokane Police Academy campus this Thursday the 21st of November 2019 from 9:00 AM to 9:30 AM. This memorial and its dedication is the class project of the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission’s (WSCJTC) Basic Law Enforcement Academy (BLEA) class #792.  Class #792 is currently attending the Spokane Police Academy and will soon be graduating and heading back to their agencies to begin working as law enforcement officers. 

Each Basic Law Enforcement Academy class takes on the responsibility of adopting a class project as a part of their journey though the initial educational portion of their career.   Those projects range from improvements in the surrounding communities or Academy grounds to ventures like this memorial and its dedication.    In this case the entire project was managed by the recruits of class #792.  They were able to secure the materials and time necessary to build the memorial through donations so that there was no cost to the academy.  

Please join us for the dedication as we remember the men and women who have fallen in the line of duty during their service as peace officers in our state, and in thanking the local community partners who gave their time and materials to make this memorial happen. The dedication will take place on the Spokane Police Academy grounds located at 2302 N. Waterworks, Spokane, WA 99212. The order of service and the list of those who gave such generous donations are listed on the attached flyers below.  

If you are planning on attending contact Sgt. Preuninger or Ofc. John O’ Brien to let us know you’re coming.
