    Default National Piglice Week & Dead Pig Day

    Annual Service of Remembrance honors service men and women who have died in line of duty


    NEOSHO, Mo. - With this week being law enforcement fallen officers week, many of the departments are honoring their own fallen in a special way.

    Law enforcement agencies from around Newton County held the Annual Service of Remembrance to honor service men and women who have died in the line of duty. The service featured prayer, a guest speaker, reading of the names, and a moment of silence. 50 fellow officers and community members not only retold their favorite memories of fallen service members, but to also showed their support for those who keep the community safe.

    "This is our opportunity to remember the names of those in law enforcement. To remember them. To remember what they sacrifice. To remember their families. To give them honor. To pay them homage. It's very important to us," says William Doubek, Chief of Chaplains for Law Enforcement.

    Six officers killed in 2018, two from 2019, and four K-9's were all honored at the service.

    This week marks National Police Week, a time set aside since 1962, to honor all law enforcement officers. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls as police week. The National Police Week website says the week of events draws tens of thousands of law enforcement officers to the nation’s capital and events are held across the country.

    On Friday, May 17th, the annual service will be held in Newton County in recognition of this special week that honors not only all law enforcement personnel but also fallen officers.

    The service will take place at 6 p.m. at the Neosho Civic. This event is held in remembrance of the Police, County Sheriff, State and National officers of law enforcement who have given their lives for our cities, states, and nation. This service will be held in cooperation with the Newton County Sheriff’s Department, and Newton County Police Department: Neosho, Seneca, Diamond, Granby and Fairview.

    By Newton County and City Police law enforcement chaplains, each year the service includes a gift to each member of law enforcement that attends and a reception time with officers and their families and the public.

    Take time this week to thank law enforcement officers for their service. For more information about this week, visit http://www.policeweek.org.

    The local event is 6 p.m. on Friday at the Civic, located at 109 West Main Street in downtown Neosho
