In honor of “National Police Week” Sheriff Richard Wiles, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, and the Sheriff’s Office Foundation will light the El Paso County Law Enforcement Memorial blue on Monday, May 11, 2020.
The public is invited to visit the El Paso County Law Enforcement Memorial Wall located at 3850 Justice Drive in Far East El Paso.
Residents can view lighting – from sundown to 11:00 pm – as well as to pay their respects at the 2019 Honor Roll of Fallen Heroes, which consists of 114 white crosses that represent law enforcement officers from around the nation, who lost their lives in 2019 while serving their communities, including Deputy Peter John Herrera.
“We will never forget the sacrifice that Peter and his family made to keep El Paso safe for all of us,” Sheriff Richard D. Wiles shared.
The week of May 10 through 16, allows for special recognition of law enforcement officers who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty protecting the public whom they serve.
