NH Police Memorial Service
On Friday May 8, 2009 the New Hampshire Law Enforcement Memorial will be held at the site of the Memorial at 10:00 AM. The New Hampshire Police Memorial is located behind the State House in Concord. All sworn and civilian members of Law Enforcement, Department of Corrections, the Legislature, the Public and the Media are invited to attend. The program will last approximately one hour. The program will consist of a few speakers, including Governor John Lynch, and Gregory Parker, son of New Hampshire State Trooper Gary Parker, killed in the line of duty in 1989. An Honorable Roll Call will recognize the names of the 42 fallen police officers, while a flower is placed in the memorial wreath. The New Hampshire Police Association Pipes & Drum Band will play many popular bag pipe lyrics, including Amazing Grace. The event is sponsored by the New Hampshire Troopers’ Association, the New Hampshire Police Association and the Chiefs of Police Association of New Hampshire.
The New Hampshire Law Enforcement Memorial Committee is still seeking approximately $25,000.00 in donations for the perpetual care fund. Any contribution amount would be greatly appreciated. Checks may be made payable to the New Hampshire Law Enforcement Memorial and mailed to Memorial Treasurer Chief Tim Russell at the Henniker Police Department, 2 Depot Street, Henniker, NH 03242.
Any questions should be directed to Sergeant Bruce Twyon of the New Hampshire State Police at (603) 228-8228 or Major Timothy Acerno of the Department of Fish & Game at (603) 271-3129.
