Every year at the beginning of May, we honor those fallen law enforcement officers that lost their lives in the line of duty during a Law Enforcement Memorial Service. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures, the public memorial service was not able to be held at the Memorial this year. However, the Utah Attorney General’s Office was proud to still able to join in honoring Utah’s fallen officers during a Memorial Service that aired on KSL today.
Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes released the following statement in recognition of Utah’s fallen heroes:
“Today we honor those courageous men and women of law enforcement who have given their lives in the line of duty. As is oft quoted, “All give some but some give all!” We pay tribute to their memory, celebrate their dedication to public service and renew our prayers with and on behalf of their families and friends who have lost so much. While we are stewards of their memories, their sacrifice will never be forgotten. May the peace they fought so hard to protect rest mightily upon their souls.
“And to those in uniform who are still with us, thank you for your continued service. May God bless you with health, protection, honor, discernment, good judgment, humility and strength. Our prayers go with you and your families every day.”
