Northwest Arkansas Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony


Law enforcement representatives from around Northwest Arkansas came to the Springdale Police Department Wednesday, May, 15, 2013 for the Northwest Arkansas Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony. This ceremony is in conjunction with Peace Officers Memorial Day which is held annually in the United States on May 15 in honor of federal, state and local officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.

I think that we are lucky to live in a part of the country that doesn’t experience the kind of violence and crime that other areas experience. That’s not to say it is completely without danger either. That is evident when you read the names on the memorials in front of the local police departments. Many times police officers go to work knowing that they are going to encounter people who really don’t like them. Maybe even want to hurt them. Those officers go anyway and do the best they can to keep the public safe. I am thankful they are there and hope no new names get added to the list.
