Honoring Fallen Heroes
Alexa Olson, WVTT News Radio
Losing a member of law enforcement is never easy but honoring them in the right way makes it a little easier. Those who have lost fallen officers will have a chance to salute them.
A ceremony honoring fallen police officers will be held on Monday May 7th in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. This will be the 19th annual memorial ceremony that is held by the fraternal order of police. Pennsylvania officers killed in the line of duty last year were Deputy Sheriff Kyle Pagerly, Officer Robert Lasso, Patrolman Derek Kotecki, and Officer John Dryer. The president of the Fraternal Order of Police is scheduled to speak as well as Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett.
