In honor of police week, the Missoula Police Department is having a law enforcement memorial ceremony Thursday night. The ceremony is being held at Rose Park at 7:00 p.m. Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh says the public is welcome to attend and show their support.

“It is a chance for us to honor those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives in performance of their duty,” said Welsh. “It is also to pay homage to their families who continue to grieve despite the passing years. During the course of the ceremony, we will be giving out some service awards to some current serving officers.”

According to Welsh, Montana law enforcement is still mourning the recent loss of Broadwater County Sheriff’s Deputy Mason Moore.

“It just emphasizes the reason that we do this,” Welsh said. “There are officers out there, men and women, who go out every day and put their lives on the line. This just put an exclamation point on it. It gives us another soul to think about when we are honoring the fallen.”

In 2010, former Missoula Police Sergeant Bob Heinle passed away after succumbing to his wounds suffered at the hands of a criminal. Welsh says Heinle is the most recent loss that the Missoula Police Department has suffered.
