Memorial Service to Honor Fallen Officers
GREENSBORO, NC (May 15, 2019) – Twenty-three police officers have lost their lives protecting Guilford County residents since 1913. On May 16, law enforcement officers from across the county will gather in solemn remembrance of those local selfless servants who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that others could enjoy freedom.
The brief, yet meaningful, ceremony begins at 10 am on Thursday, May 16 on Governmental Plaza in Greensboro. The ceremony features a multi-agency honor guard, wreath-laying ceremony, and 21-gun salute. Family members of some of the fallen officers will also be present to place a single red rose on a wreath to honor their absent loved one.
The ceremony is part of National Peace Officers Week. It is free and open to the public.
