Honoring our law enforcement officers

Sunday afternoon, I attended the Quad Cities Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Service. 

It was a very impactful and honorable service that began at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. After the church Memorial Service, we conducted a vehicular procession to the Rock Island County Justice Center’s Law Enforcement Memorial site. The names of each of the 49 Quad City area Officers killed in the line of duty were read, including the department they served and the date of their End of Watch.

A family member or department representative then placed a flower on the “Some Gave All” memorial. The Patriot guard was also present providing our National Colors. Prayers were said, a salute was fired, along with Taps and the echo. The event was very well done.
