Public invited to honor fallen law enforcement officers



Published:

A memorial service will be held Friday, May 15 at the Police Hall of Fame in Titusville to honor officers killed in the line of duty during 2014. 

In 1962, John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15 of each year to be known nationally as Peace Officer Memorial Day.

The names of all of the Brevard County fallen officers who died in the line of duty during the past 50 years will also be read and remembered. The service is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend to honor the officers and their families.

For more information, call 321-264-0911.
