DOC Participates in Police Memorial, Arrival of Honor Flag

On Friday, May 9th the annual Police Memorial Day ceremony took place in Anchorage. Sixty-five names have been placed on the memorial outside the Scientific Crime Detection Laboratory. A bell was tolled each time a name was read representing each fallen officer. The memorial was very moving with Amazing Grace being played with bagpipes, a 21 gun salute, and Taps preformed at the end. It was a beautiful day and hundreds arrived to show their respects. Earlier, FCC Sgt. Daniel Colang participated in ceremonies marking the arrival of the U.S. Honor Flag in Fairbanks.
