Police Memorial Service is Friday

The Dublin Division of Police will honor officers who have fallen in the line of duty during a public ceremony Friday, May 10.

The police will host an annual Police Memorial Service at 1 p.m. Friday at the Dublin Justice Center, 6565 Commerce Pkwy, at 1 p.m. May 10.

"We believe it is important for members of our profession and the community to honor the personal sacrifices these officers have made," Dublin Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg said in a news release.

During the ceremony, Kim Brown, the sister of a Franklin County Deputy Sheriff who was killed in the line of duty in 2008, will speak. The names of local officers killed in the line of duty will also be read to honor their sacrifice.

The names can also be found on the Memorial Arch at the Justice Center.

The public service is held in conjunction with National Police Memorial Week, which runs May 12-18.
