Law Enforcement Memorial Wednesday Evening
In Missoula’s Rose Park, a stone memorial stands to commemorate law enforcement officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. The most recent name to be added was that of Missoula Police Department Sergeant Robert Heinle, who passed away in 2010.
This year’s ceremony will be Wednesday evening with officers from City Police, University of Montana Police and the Missoula County Sheriff’s Department to be honored. Missoula County Sheriff Carl Ibsen talks about Wednesday night’s ceremony.
Missoula Police Department Captain Chris Odlin details the officers under his command that will be honored.
I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the memorial, and reflect on the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect and serve every day.
