After a two year hiatus due to the pandemic, members of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies came out to the campus of Ferris State University to pay respects to past and present fallen officers during the 17th Annual Police Memorial.
Keynote Speaker and Mecosta County Sheriff Brian Miller told attendees when he got his first job as a police officer 26 years ago he wanted to make a difference like a lot of his other brothers and sisters in law enforcement.
“We all go into this job to make a difference, a positive one,” Miller said. “Events come up sometimes where we have to make that quick decision. And you hope through training and experience that those decisions are the correct ones.”
Following Miller's speech, Ferris State DPS Director John Allen addressed the crowd and the playing “Taps,” to close out the program.
