  • Memory of fallen officers honored in west Kentucky

It was so designated by joint resolution of Congress in 1962 as an annual tribute to law enforcement service. The city of Marshalltown is fortunate to have dedicated and compassionate public safety professionals serving in our community. I feel fortunate to work with such a wonderful group of professionals.

The most recent officer honored, Sgt. Joseph Cox, 48, a 19-year sheriff's department veteran, died February 12, 2017.

"It's a selfless job that they have".

"As others are fleeing away from the danger, officers are running into the danger, and we should never forget their service", Kaelin said.

"It's truly a great honor for our local county Sheriff's Office to honor and pay respect to Trooper Allen and his family", Wilson said.

Nevertheless, the Japanese gaming giant declared via Twitter the NES Classic will go back to shops in the USA on June 29. The 30 games include Super Mario Bros ., Metroid , Pac-Man, Donkey Kong , The Legend of Zelda , and Kirby's Adventure.

Jay Farr urged attendees to consider what more they can do to prevent the killing of police, putting a particular focus on one of the leading causes of line of duty deaths: gun violence. The 2018 numbers through May 9 represent a 9 percent increase in comparison with the same period in 2017.

"Within these challenges, law enforcement demands are ever changing".

Near the end of the ceremony, people in the audience held up blue glow sticks, signifying the thin blue line law enforcement officers walk on every day. This is 75 percent higher than this time previous year.

In the fall, the National Police Officers Museum will finally open.

"Each year there are approximately 60,000 assaults on law enforcement officers", Isaac said.

As the last notes of Taps drifted into the night at the conclusion of this year's Candlelight Vigil, the rain started to drop from the heavens, having patiently held off for the 90-minute remembrance event honoring those officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you for the work you do.

The Marshalltown Police Department enjoys tremendous public support.
