Peace Officers Memorial

An honor guard from the Idaho Falls Police Department places a small candle inside commemorative glasses engraved with the names of each law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in the state of Idaho.

The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office and Idaho Falls Police Department held a Peace Officer Memorial on Friday at the close of National Police Week to commemorate Idaho’s officers and deputies who have been killed in the line of duty.

The ceremony, held at the Bonneville County Courthouse, recognized the risks and responsibilities assumed every day by the men and women who protect our communities. Since 1883, 77 individuals and five canines have given the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their law enforcement duties in the state.
