Sheriff's Office to hold third annual LEO Memorial Ceremony during Police Week
May 13, 2019
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Law Enforcement Memorial Day, and set aside that week to be recognized as National Police Week. This year, Police Week runs from May 12th through May 18th. In cities all across the country, Law Enforcement Agencies will conduct ceremonies during Police Week to honor those officers that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. In keeping with that tradition, and in honor of all those brave men and women that died in the line of duty, the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office will hold its third annual Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony on May 15, 2019, at 12pm. The ceremony will be held on the North lawn of the Old Courthouse in Heber Springs. The Sheriff’s Office would like to invite you to attend, and would be sincerely honored at your presence. As of today, there have been 33 Line-of-Duty-Deaths in 2019. We are grateful to every one of these officers for their brave service and sacrifice; may they rest in peace, and may we continue in their absence.
This year we are proud to announce that our guest speaker will be Lt. Governor Tim Griffin. We hope that you are able to join us in honoring our fallen brothers and sisters.
Sheriff Chris Brown
