CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — The Cranston Police Department will honor fallen officers during a ceremony Tuesday morning.

It’s one of many commemorative events happening taking place throughout the country in honor of National Law Enforcement Memorial Week.

Cranston Police Chief Michael Winquist will be delivering the keynote address, with remarks from Mayor Allan Fung and the Cranston Honor Guard will conduct ceremonial honors.

“Every year we continue to come together to honor heroic officers from the Cranston Police Department and from across the nation who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as those officers who continue to serve despite the inherent risks associated with the profession,” Winquist said. “These Officers will never be forgotten and our prayers are with their families, friends, and Officers from their respective police departments.”

This special memorial is open to the public. Communities all across the United States will come together May 12-18 to honor and remember those in law enforcement who made the ultimate sacrifice.
