Local Law Enforcement Honor The Fallen

Local Law Enforcement Honor The Fallen

This week we recognize the sacrifices of our law enforcement officers who have fallen or been injured.

Yankton County Deputy Sheriff Darrin Moser explains the meaning of this solemn occasion ….

National Police Officer Memorial Day was enacted by President John F. Kennedy in 1962 setting May 15th as this special day of observance. Police week is the week that May 15th falls in.

Moser expresses how they all experience loss, even if they do not work directly with an officer ….

The honor that we show towards those men and women who sacrificed themselves and their families for us demonstrates the true character of a community.
