This page serves as a tribute to those who have gone before us and made the ultimate sacrifice. Law enforcement officers across the nation head into work each day knowing that there is a chance they may never return home. Of this possibility, they and their families are well aware. Yet they choose to put on the uniform day after day to protect and serve their communities. According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, more than 25,000 law enforcement officers from across the nation have died in the line of duty. The Kent County Area is not an exception to this figure, and neither is the Walker Police Department. Listed below are the names of every fallen officer who served within Kent County, along with their end of watch (EOW).
We salute you, fallen heroes. May we never forget.
