The Seattle 911 Blog has some great coverage and a link to view/download the Fallen Officer Memorial program from the funeral services held on Dec 8th 2009.

The full memorial service is also linked from the blog ablove if you wish to take a video look.

Lakewood Police Chief Brett Farrar gave the remark that describes best what officers do, in times of unimaginable loss. Sadly, SBPD officers have faced this challenge too many times. Yet it is a part of what we do. Chief Farrar:

“There’s been a lot said about how law enforcement would react to this,” Farrar said. “We’re going to strap our gear on, we’re going to go back out there, and we’re going to protect our people. We’re going to protect our citizens. We’re going to protect our children.”

Next time you see an officer, please take a moment to thank them if you appreciate their service and dedication. Especially with 2009 being such a violent, deadly year for Law Enforcement Officers nationwide.
