Celebrating National Police Week
Mayor Kenny Billings signed a proclamation for National Police Week during Monday night’s city council meeting, and presented it to Estherville Police Chief Brett Shatto.
Flags were flown at half staff on Tuesday to remember officers that have died in the line of duty.
This year, the names of 394 officers killed in the line of duty are being added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. These 394 officers include 143 officers who were killed during 2016, plus 251 officers who died in previous years but whose stories of sacrifice had been lost to history until now.
