The Law Enforcement Memorial will be held this year on Thursday. The program will start at 11:30 a.m. at the Memorial site at 600 Market St., adjacent to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.
This program is dedicated to honor law enforcement heroes who have died in the line of duty and for those who continue to serve and protect. Acts of heroism and valor are performed every day by the law enforcement officers who serve the citizens of Hamilton County. These men and women have chosen a career on the front line and willingly place themselves in harm’s way. It takes a brave person to run toward danger when everyone else is running away.
The law enforcement family and citizens will be able to witness something new this year at the Memorial site. There will be a commercial-grade, 300mW blue laser light projector, the kind often used in large concert venues and during this week’s Police Week services in Washington DC.
The laser will be located in the old Blue Cross Blue Shield building across the street and will be projected at the Memorial each evening during next week’s Police Week. This location is made possible to the sheriff’s office by the building owner, Sanjana Savant, and the engineering firm of Mesa Associates, Inc.
