Dedication ceremony to be held for fallen officers

DUNCAN — In honor of National Law Enforcement Day, the Stephens County Sheriff’s Office will place a memorial marker to recognize fallen law enforcement officers.

Between 1821 and 1985, five law enforcement officers died while on duty in Stephens County. The memorial marker will be placed by a flag pole at 10 a.m. Thursday in front of the Stephens County Courthouse.

The dedication ceremony will include a 21-gun salute, a bugle playing “TAPS” and bag pipes performing “Amazing Grace.” The goal of the sheriff’s office is to make this an annual event for the county.
