Local law enforcement honors fallen officers.
The Springdale Police Department hosted the 2019 Northwest Arkansas Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony.
The ceremony honored officers who died in the line of duty.
Lt. Jeff Taylor with Springdale police said honoring fallen brothers and sisters is the best way he knows to not forget them or their sacrifice.
“It’s important because we want to continually remember that the job is dangerous and that sometimes when we go out to do our jobs, we don’t come home,” Taylor said. “And we wanna make sure the families of the people that paid that sacrifice. They understand how appreciative we are for them to give up their loved one for this profession.”
The ceremony recognized fallen officers from Benton. Madison and Washington County.
