Law Enforcement Celebration
Montrose, CO — Officers with the Montrose Police Department along with deputies from the Montrose County Sheriff's Office will honor the service and sacrifice of area law enforcement officers and their families at the Montrose Police Week celebration held in Centennial Plaza, Wednesday, May 15, at 10 a.m.
The service is in conjunction with the National Police Week (May 12-18) celebration honoring law enforcement officers and their families throughout our nation for their continued commitment and sacrifice to our country and communities.
"The ceremony is a testament to the service our men and women in uniform do each and every day in our community," Montrose Police Commander Tim Cox said. "We would like to see as many people as possible come and celebrate the important work law enforcement officers do, not only in Montrose but in the surrounding communities."
“The Montrose County Sherriff’s Office is proud to participate in this event,” said Montrose County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant Ty Cox. “Law enforcement officers and their families sacrifice each and every day to work to make our community a safer place. It is important to honor their efforts and remember the fallen not only on May 15th but throughout the year.”
Together the Montrose Police Department and Montrose County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a 21 gun salute. Montrose Mayor Dave Bowman and Montrose County Commissioner Sue Hansen will jointly read a proclamation announcing support for law enforcement officers.
Led by a presentation by the Montrose High School NJROTC, Montrose Police Chief Blaine Hall, Montrose County Sheriff Gene Lillard, and District Attorney Dan Hotsenpiller will speak about the continued commitment of law enforcement officers.
