Bossier law enforcement takes part in Peace Officer Memorial

BPD to honor fallen members of department during National Police Week

The city of Waco declared this week National Peace Officer Memorial Week for the city.

Reynolds said as the elected sheriff of Cherokee County, he is committed to help preserve the quality of life and to "work with the fine men and women in blue and brown, whether they are Canton Police, Holly Springs, Woodstock, school resource officers, State Patrol or State Troopers".

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls as National Police Week. Stroud said this year's participation in the challenge was the largest it's been in the three years the department has held the event.

The Wyoming Law Enforcement Memorial was initiated in 2011 by a combined effort of several Cheyenne area law enforcement agencies.

"These are just a few of the many heroes we honor today", said Sterling, of the Lake Havasu City Police Department, during remarks at Wednesday morning's Peace Officers Memorial service outside the Bullhead City Police Department.

It was a special evening for many, like Ethan LePiane who lost his grandfather, Stephen LePiane, in the line of duty.

According to the White House, these attacks increased almost 40 percent from 2015, which is deeply troubling and outrageous. Each year, there are approximately 60,000 assaults on law enforcement officers, resulting in almost 16,000 injuries. Officer deaths peaked in 1930, when 307 were killed.

Chattanooga Police Department Chief Fred Fletcher opened by thanking friends, family, police officers and elected officials for their support.

On Thursday, families and dozens of police officers gathered for the annual Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Day Service at Lake Bluff Park.

"These are officers that put themselves in harms way, sacrificed in order to serve their communities", Hewitt Police Chief James Devlin said.

"Police officers and staff, are ordinary people doing an extraordinary role to protect their communities". "Campus public safety officers know that someday they may have to make the ultimate sacrifice". Please join me in continuing to pray for these individuals and the service to which they're committed on our behalf.

"Our rights and liberties, our whole way of life, depend on the courage of the men and women who wear blue".

"There are twinges of sadness, as you see the family go up".
