Fallen Officers Memorialized

The names of 28 fallen police officers were added Monday to a statewide memorial in Richmond.

The names include two officers who died last year and 26 others who died in the last 100 years.

Kentucky lost two officers last year. Bell County Sheriff's Deputy Sean Pursiful died in a crash while his colleagues were pursuing a suspect.

Harlan County Constable Joe E. Howard also died.

The names that were added on Monday to the Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial at Eastern Kentucky University are also being added to a national monument in Washington, D.C.

    I would like to see the Canine's name added to the list, after all it was a part of a law enforcement department. Maybe we need to check with the Washington Memorial to see if this is possible,after all they have to be put on there first. My heart goes out to all of those who have lost love ones in the line of duty. Many thanks to all of the law enforcement officers serving our city,state, and nation.

    I wish some-one would let the public know when they are going to have these memorials. I would like to attend them.
