It’s an emotional event! Every year, the Big Bend Area Law Enforcement Officers Association holds a Memorial Service to pay tribute to West Texas Officers killed in the line of duty.
Chief Michael Gerke and officers from the Odessa Police Department were among those there. Numerous agencies attend. The special ceremony took place at Sul Ross State University in Alpine.
Officers want their loved ones to know that they will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
The City of Odessa knows officers risk their lives to protect us! We are thankful and proud they are part of our amazing city.
