Police Memorial Service
On Wednesday, May 21, 2014 a Police Memorial Service was held at the Rochester Police Locust Club. The ceremony was a tribute to law enforcement officers who have passed on, are sick, injured or have given their life in the line of duty.
The Gates Keystone Pipes and Drums led the procession. A choral group from the School of the Arts performed the National Anthem as well as other songs.
Several speakers praised the efforts and professionalism of law enforcement personnel and thanked all of them for their bravery and dedicated work. Some of those attending were Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks, Deputy- Mayor Leonard Redon, Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli and Locust Club President Michael Mazzeo. ARPALER President Joseph Cimino read the names of the seventeen law enforcement officers who have passed away since May 2013.
Representatives from the New York State Troopers and various town police agencies were also part of the ceremony.
Refreshments were served following the ceremony.
