(Grand Island, Neb.) - May 11, 2015 - 10:00AM
Ceremonies honoring Nebraska’s law enforcement community will be held across the state as part of National Police Week May 10-16.
A statewide ceremony honoring the lives of officers who have
died or been killed in the line of duty will be held today, Monday, May 11,
beginning at 10:00 a.m., at the Nebraska Law Enforcement Memorial located at
409 East Fonner Park Road in Grand Island.
Remarks will be provided by Governor Pete Ricketts and Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson. An Honor Guard from the Bellevue Police Department will present the Colors. Representatives from law enforcement agencies across the state, including the Nebraska State Patrol, will be in attendance.
The Nebraska Law Enforcement Memorial on the grounds at Fonner Park in Grand Island, Nebraska was dedicated Monday, May 11, 2009. The dark granite memorial with 137 names etched into it's surface honors those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, and to those who still answer the call. We honor them.
In order to keep their memory alive and their stories told, the memorial committee hosts an annual memorial ceremony which is a celebration of the life and contributions of the individuals whose names appear on the wall. And through this celebration we remember them, the brave, the children, brothers, sisters, and community members who gave their lives to protect the citizens of Nebraska. We honor them.
The roll call you see on this website honors those who have lost their lives as recently as 2014 and reaches as far back as 1866. Unfortunately, the memorial and these pages will never be static. As officers continue to answer the call, the memorial will be ever changing. We honor them.
