Police Memorial Day

Today the annual Police Memorial Day event was held at the Fairbanks Police Department. Peace officers and the public assembled for a time to remember 67 Alaskan heroes in law enforcement. The event included a Welcome from Deputy Chief Brad Johnson, Invocation by Chaplain Brian Graham, National Anthem sung by David Wilcoxin, Remarks by Senator Mark Begich, and Keynote Speaker Michael Geraghty. The memorial wreaths were places and name plaques unveiled. The US Air Force provided a 21-Gun Salute and Taps was played by Airman First Class Daniel Cadena from the US Air Force. Our very own Officer Nate Werner played Amazing Grace on the bagpipes. Photo credit – Amber CourtneyIMG_1486 (2)
