Longview Police Receive New Memorial

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A new memorial now sits outside of the Longview Police Department. It's to remind everyone about the sacrifices some officers have made.
Longview PD Public Information Officer Kristie Brian says it's a subtle reminder. It lists every single officer that has died in the line of duty while working for the Longview Police Department. 

"It's there to say hey, we want to remember those that have lost their lives. But at the same time, remind those officers or even people that may come in applying for a job,  just how dangerous this job is." - Kristie Brian, Longview Police Department

The stone obelisk lists every Longview Police Officer who has died in the line of duty. It commemorates their sacrifices for ETX. The memorial was donated by the Longview Police Officer's Association.
