Honoring, remembering and celebrating fallen law officers
From the Office of Gov. Jay Inslee:
On Wednesday [May 4], Gov. Jay Inslee joined Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste, troopers and family members at the Washington State Patrol Fallen Officer Memorial Service in the courtyard of the Washington State Patrol Academy in Shelton. WSP hosts the annual ceremony to honor and remember the lives of the troopers who have fallen.
“There is so much honor in this line of work, and it is only matched by the humility of these officers and their families,” said Inslee. “A fallen officer’s death is not the end of their story. It is simply the beginning of how we reflect, contextualize and take even greater meaning from what they gave us and how our lives can be a blessing to others by following their example. Their memories will live on alongside the other fallen troopers from 100 years of the agency’s existence.”
