Honoring the Fallen

Jeremy BohnMay 15, 2019

The city of Salina honored its law enforcement officers and those who have given their lives to protect the public on Wednesday morning.

The ceremony was held Jerry Ivey Park in Salina. It was apart of National Police Week, a time in which the United States government recognizes and honors law enforcement.

Onlookers at the ceremony in Salina included officers of the Salina Police Department, Saline County Sheriff’s deputies, city commissioners as well as the Mayor of Salina, Dr. Trent Davis.

Chief of Police Brad Nelson and Mayor Davis both gave remarks on Wednesday as well. Dr. Davis tells KSAL News that its important to give support to those who keep the order.

 

Honored at Wednesday’s ceremony were four Salina police officers, John Stonebraker, Tom Carson, Olney E. Eaton and Jerry R. Ivey; Saline County Sheriff Fred Bell; and 10 Kansas Highway Patrol troopers who all died in the line of duty.
