2018 Peace Officers Memorial Service

CRYSTAL FALLS — Today was the 28th annual Upper Peninsula Law Enforcement Memorial Service, which was held at Forest Park School in Crystal Falls.

It’s also National Police Week, where they recognized people who died in the line of duty. It’s important to put on this annual event, so people have the chance to see what goes into being a police officer.

“It gives the communities an opportunity to realize that officers do make sacrifices daily. Weather its away from our families or unfortunately sometimes tragedy happens and officers are killed during the performance of their duties,” said Paul Campbell, First Lieutenant of the Post Commander in Iron Mountain.

They concluded today’s event with the tradition of a wreath laying that’s placed in remembrance of our fallen police and soldiers.
