Peace Officers Memorial Day ceremony

Gov. Mike Dunleavy has proclaimed Saturday, May 15, as Peace Officers Memorial Day.

On Friday, May 14, law enforcement officers from across Southcentral Alaska, will gather outside of the Alaska Scientific Crime Detection Lab at 4805 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. in Anchorage to honor the 68 peace officers who made the ultimate sacrifice in The Last Frontier.

The ceremony will start at 3 pm and will be streamed live on the Alaska State Troopers’ Facebook page for those unable to attend. The event is open to the public and media.

Additionally, there will be a ceremony in Juneau at noon at Evergreen Cemetery. A ceremony will be held in Interior Alaska at a later date.
