National Police Week
May 13th-19th is National Police Week, which is an observance that pays tribute to officers killed in the line of duty. We would like to pay respects to all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice; including our own from our department. (First photo) Officer Alvin W. Haynes was killed on September 6, 1933. While conducting a traffic stop on a truck, a drunk driver collided into the back of the truck pinning Officer Haynes. (Second photo) Officer Elmer H. Griffin was killed on February 7, 1926. Officer Griffin was shot and killed while attempting to take custody of suspects in possession of alcohol during the prohibition era. Officers Griffin and Haynes are gone, but not forgotten.
