Nassau County Police Benevolent Association Unveils Fallen Officers Memorial
The Nassau County Police Department held its annual Police Officers Memorial Ceremony on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 in front of Police Headquarters in Mineola, New York. The event is held annually to pay tribute to its police officers who passed away during the previous year. The roll call of these officers, active and retired, is done at the ceremony with dignity and respect so that all in attendance can hear the names of the officers being honored, and many of their family members attend.
At this year's ceremony, the Nassau County PBA unveiled the new Fallen Officers Memorial, which was erected over this past summer. Featured at the site are six granite walls emblazoned with individual bronze plaques commemorating all Nassau County police officers who were killed in the line of duty since the police department’s formation. Many family members of the fallen officers attended the ceremony, and were gratified by the fact that their loved ones were honored and have not been forgotten.
The PBA worked on this project for several years and the contractor who designed it did an outstanding job creating a beautiful place of remembrance. This memorial serves as a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that each of these Police Officers made for the county and its citizens.
The project could not have been completed without funding from the PBA, but from the Nassau County Detectives Association and Superior Officers Association as well.
