McLennan County Officers Remember Those Killed On Duty

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A special memorial service was held on Thursday for McLennan County officers killed in the line of duty.
The event happens in Indian Spring Park every year, but this ceremony was especially emotional as officers acknowledged the recent death of Killeen officer Charles Dinwiddie.
     
Chief John Truehitt of Lacy Lakeview Police Department says they all work closely together like a family and when one hurts, they all hurt. 

"These officers serve because of the love of the service," Truehitt said. "They truly want to make the world a better place to be."

The memorial service included a 21-gun salute and helicopter fly over. They read the names of every McLennan County officer ever killed in the line of duty, but they say they're lucky the county hasn't lost an officer on the job in over ten years.
