KINGMAN – On Tuesday, May 14 the local Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Mohave County Lodge #16, Kingman, held a ceremony to re-dedicate the memorial that was previously donated by the chapter to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

The Memorial is located at the entrance to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office at 600 Beale Street. FOP President John Slaughter stated they wanted to do this in conjunction with National Police Week in which all police officers, particularly those who died in the line of duty, are honored and remembered.

President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1962 in 1962.  As well, the week in which that date falls is designated Police Week. 

After brief comments, the names listed on the memorial were read by Lodge Secretary Wes Maroney with a moment of silence that followed. The ceremony was well attended by current law enforcement officers as well as retired officers.
