On Monday May 17, 2010 the New Hampshire Law Enforcement Memorial will be held at the site of the Police 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 Attorney General Michael Delaney. An Honorable Roll Call will recognize the names of the New Hampshire’s 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.
New this year is the Beaver Meadow School Chorus, comprised of 35 4th & 5th grade students who will sing a medley of patriotic songs. The event is sponsored by the New Hampshire Troopers Association, the New Hampshire Police Association, the Police Chief’s Association of New Hampshire, and the NH Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Committee.
