Eight Tucson Police officers who dedicated their lives to serving the City of Tucson gave the ultimate sacrifice and were killed in the line of duty. Every year, the Tucson Police Department (TPD) remembers and honors these heroes for their dedicated service. On Wednesday, May 8, TPD will host the 2019 Tucson Police Department Annual Fallen Officer Memorial. The service will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Memorial Courtyard on the front lawn of the TPD Headquarters, 270 S. Stone Ave.
The event will include speakers, the posting of colors by the TPD Honor Guard, a presentation of roses and wreaths to commemorate the fallen officers, a video tribute, a rifle salute with Taps, and a flyover by the TPD Air Unit. There also will be light refreshments immediately following the ceremony.
