Community Honors Law Enforcement Officers

Officers put their lives on the line every day to protect us and some of them pay the ultimate price.

South Mississippi honored fallen police officers Saturday for Police Appreciation Week. As the protector of police, Saint Michael, watched over, officers lit candles as a bell rang in their memory.

The bell tower at the Church of the Redeemer is also a year-round memorial to police officers who have fallen in the line of duty.
