Fallen Officers / Peace Officer Memorial
In 1962 President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation, which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day. Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world participate in planned events, which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The Jones County Law Enforcement Agencies remember our brothers and sisters at home and across the Country, that paid that price.
The 2018 Peace Officer Memorial was held at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art. We honored the service and memory of Deputy Randy Chancellor who was killed by a drunk driver while in the line of duty on February 28, 2001, along with the many other officers who paid the ultimate price from all across the State and Nation.
