The Schuyler County Sheriff’s Office will hold its fourth annual Law Enforcement Memorial Day Service on May 15th beginning at 11 A.M. in front of the Michael J. Maloney Public Safety Building on 10th Street in Watkins Glen.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a declaration, proclaiming May 15th as Peace Officer’s Memorial Day, a day set apart to honor our members of law enforcement who have fallen in the line of duty.
The Schuyler County Sheriff’s Service honors those from its agency and other local departments that have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. The service also includes those members that have died while in service to our communities serving and protecting and this year will also honor those retirees that have departed since our last memorial service.
This service is open to the public as a reminder of the sacrifices that our men and woman give and have given to serve and protect our area.
