A wreath-laying ceremony took place this morning at OPD to honor two fallen officers. It's been 14 years since Corporal Arlie Jones and Corporal Scott Gardner lost their lives in the line of duty while responding to a domestic violence call.
This wreath will be on display until sunset in remembrance of our officers. Anyone wishing to pay their respects is encouraged to visit our memorial during this time.
The Odessa Police Department hopes you will also share your memories of these fallen heroes as a way to continue to keep their memories alive.
Many in our community have also been asking about Corporal Abel Marquez. We will be paying tribute to him on Sunday in the same way. We remember our fallen heroes on the day they passed away.
