A ceremony to honor Salina and Saline County law enforcement officers, and state troopers who have died in the line of duty will be held later this week. The event will be held at Jerry Ivey Park as part of National Police Week.
The Salina Police Color Guard will present the colors, followed by a roll call of the 15 officers killed in the line of duty in Saline County.
The Peace Officer Memorial ceremony will be held at Jerry Ivey Park on Friday, beginning at 8:00 in the morning.
The park is named in honor of the last Salina Police Officer killed in the line of duty. Jerry Ivey was killed on June 13th, 1975, during an exchange of gunfire with a robbery suspect.
