Clark County sheriff’s Sgt. Jeremy Brown will be one of seven slain Washington law enforcement officers whose names will be added today to a memorial in Washington, D.C.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle is honoring National Police Week, which this year is May 11-17, by recognizing the seven officers in the state who died in the line of duty since 2019.
“This week, we gather to pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who sacrificed their lives in service to our country,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a news release. “We remember the courage with which they worked and lived. And we recommit ourselves to the mission to which they dedicated their lives. On behalf of a grateful Justice Department and a grateful nation, I extend my sincerest thanks and gratitude to the entire law enforcement community.”
The names of the 619 officers from across the nation who will be added to the memorial will be read during a candlelight vigil today, beginning at 5 p.m. People can watch a livestream online at youtube.com/TheNLEOMF.
