Honoring Fallen Officers

May 2, 2019

This National Law Enforcement Memorial Month, we are grateful for those that put themselves in harm’s way each day to protect Utah’s families and communities and we mourn for those who lost their lives in the line of duty. The family and close friends of those lost are in our hearts and prayers. Thank you to all who serve.

Today, the Utah Attorney General’s office joined the Brigham City Police Department, South Salt Lake Police Department, Provo Police Department, and Sandy Police Department for the Utah Law Enforcement Memorial Service to honor fallen officers Assistant Chief Dennis B. Vincent, Officer David P. Romrell, Master Officer Joseph Shinners, and all other law enforcement officers that gave the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. We were joined by family, friends, and comrades at the Law Enforcement Memorial on the Capitol grounds as we prayed together and gave tribute to those lost.
