A wreath and flowers have been placed at the Butler County Sheriff's Office Police Officers Memorial in honor of National Peace Officers Memorial Day.
The memorial is located at the Jail and Operational
Headquarters building on Hanover Street, Hamilton.
Flags have been lowered
to half-staff, in honor of all fallen Peace Officers.
"This week (National
Police Week), and specifically today, is a time for all of us to stop and
remember all the brave men and women Peace Officers who have made the ultimate
sacrifice in service to communities throughout Butler County, the State of
Ohio, and the nation," said Sheriff Richard Jones. "Paying this small tribute to them is the very least we can do to show
our respect for all that they gave."
