Fallen officers honored in Sebastian County


Fallen officers were remembered in Sebastian County Wednesday for paying the ultimate sacrifice. 

Men and women killed in the line of duty were honored at the Sebastian County Courthouse Wednesday morning.

A memorial service was held paying tribute to officers, troopers and deputies.

Sheriff Hobe Runion said it’s critical to not forget the sacrifices made by law enforcement. 

“It’s invaluable, especially for the families of those fallen officers,” Runion said. “They paid the ultimate sacrifice. They gave their lives doing a job many wouldn’t do.”

Runion said even though it’s a solemn occasion, it’s heartwarming to see the community come together in support of the men and women in blue.
