National Peace Officer Memorial Week
Kendall County Sheriff's Office cordially invites you to join us this week in recognition of National Peace Officer Memorial Week as we honor all Law Enforcement Officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The Kendall County Sheriff's Office would like to pay a special tribute to six of our local heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in their service to the citizens of Kendall County.
The current crisis our Nation is facing has unfortunately led to the cancellation of public gatherings. Therefore to abide by the restrictions that are in place there will be three different opportunities for the community to come together and pay tribute virtually.
1. We will be premiering the Kendall County Sheriff's Office Law Enforcement Memorial Video on the Kendall County Sheriff's Office Facebook Page on Wednesday, May 13, 2020, at 10:00 am.
2. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum cordially invite you to the virtual 32nd Annual Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday, May 13, 2020, at 7:00 pm. The Memorial honors 22, 217 who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This year, they will add the names of 307 fallen law enforcement officers - 135 of which we lost in the line of duty in 2019. The other 172 are the names of officers who fell in the years prior and who are now being recognized. Please register at https://lawmemorial.org/virtualcandlelightvigil to watch the video with your family and friends and light a virtual candle in honor of Deputy Carlos A. Ramirez #1170 and Community Supervision Officer Russell Dean "Rusty" Salazar.
3. Then on Thursday, May 14th, at 7:00 pm, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) is hosting a Virtual Memory Board. Please join us on the National C.O.P.S. Facebook page for an interactive watch party to leave messages of honor and respect for Deputy Carlos A.Ramirez, and other fallen heroes.
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God. Matthew 5:9
