Wall of Remembrance For Fallen Officers Dedicated at Public Safety Building
by News

Here's a sobering statistic: Every two-and-a-half days in our country, a police officer is killed in the line of duty.
In Monroe County, a new memorial wall recognizes the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting their community.

Eleven names of deputies who have died in the line of duty are now permanently unveiled on a wall with plaques dedicated to each individual. Some of the surviving family members were in attendance at Wednesday's ceremony, along with several officials from the law enforcement community.

Cari Crawford lost her mom in 1995. Corporal Catherine Crawford died from injuries sustained while breaking up a fight between two inmates.

"We keep it going. My dad's very in with all the cops' organizations, so it's never bittersweet. It's always ongoing, her remembrance, in everything he does, so my dad's a real big supporter of it," she said.

The memorial was funded by several local law enforcement agencies. It will compliment the outside Wall of Remembrance on the plaza level of the Public Safety Building, and serve as a reminder that these officers gave their lives for our protection and will never be forgotten.
