The Durant Police Department and Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 113 will host the 12th annual memorial service for fallen law enforcement officers on Thursday, May 16. The event will be held at the Choctaw Nation Headquarters Amphitheater at 1802 Chukka Hina Drive. The service will begin at 5:45 p.m.

“Unfortunately, many brave men and women have lost their lives in the line of duty, but it is my honor to stand for those who have fallen,” said Lieutenant and honor guard member Chris Marcy. “They lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others, and are more than deserving of this memorial service.”

All Bryan County law enforcement agencies are invited to attend. Representatives from the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office, Choctaw Nation Lighthorse Police, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Calera Police Department and Sherman Police Department will participate in the ceremony. The public is invited to attend.

The memorial service is held in conjunction with National Police Week, observed May 12-18.
