Kettering Police remember fallen officers

KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – In recognition of “National Police Week,” the Kettering Police Department will host a memorial service Tuesday to honor fallen officers.

This ceremony will reflect on their lives and service to our community. The service will include a benediction, a color and honor guard, bag pipes and an address by Chief Christopher Protsman.

May 15th has been National Peace Officer Memorial Day since President John F. Kennedy signed the observance into law on October 1, 1962. In 2004, President William J. Clinton, signed a law stipulating that on May 15th the flag of the United States will be displayed at half-staff on all government buildings.

It begins at 3:00 p.m. on the plaza outside of the police department on Shroyer Road.
