Law Enforcement Memorial Service – 2015

On May 14, 2015 at 4 p.m. the 2015 Law Enforcement Memorial Service will be held at St. John Lutheran Church located at 4608 Brambleton Avenue. This year Virginia Western’s Campus Police Department has the honor of hosting this most solemn event. The service takes place each year during the National Law Enforcement Week to honor the Roanoke Valley Law Enforcement Officers who have been killed in the line of duty. There are probably more of them than you may think who have died. We humbly offer you this invitation to attend, the event is open to the community. The service lasts about 45 minutes and will be followed by great refreshments donated by Mission BBQ. Please come out and support the valley’s law enforcement on this most important day, we would love to see you there.
