BCSD Launches Memorial Foundation

Posted: Updated:

"If we don't remember and honor our past we have no future."

Those were the words of Bell County Sheriff Eddy Lange during a press conference Tuesday to announce the launch of the Bell County Sheriff's Department Foundation.

The foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to raise funds to build a proper and dignified memorial for the county's 18 fallen officers.

The foundation's formation comes in the months following the deaths of Bell County Sheriff's Deputy Adam Davis and Killeen Police Swat Officer Robert Bobby Hornsby.

Both of their names will be inscribed on a public monument designed by Bell County Commissioner Tim Brown.

Brown says the monument will be erected at the Bell County Justice Complex and is intended to bring awareness to the dangers law enforcement officers face every day.

Hornsby's Widow Kimberly and Davis' father Carlos attended Thursday's conference for the unveiling of the monument's conceptual design.

"I'm very, very thankful for it," Kimberly said. "I think it's something tangible for people in this county to see, so that they can honor the sacrifices that are made every day."

"That's plumb beautiful," said Carlos. "I mean, I think it's going to be one great thing to have."

The foundation's future plans also include providing financial assistance and scholarship programs to Bell County peace officers and their immediate families.

The Foundation will host its 1st Annual Johnson Brothers Ford Police Memorial Golf Tournament will be held April 20-21.
