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.

AG Reyes Honors Officer Romrell

November 25, 2018

Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes shared the following upon hearing of the tragic loss of Officer David Romrell of the South Salt Lake Police Department: 

All of us in the Utah AG Office express our sorrow and condolences to the family of Officer David Romrell as well as to Chief Jack Carruth and the South Salt Lake Police Department. The loss of any member of our law enforcement family is felt very deeply. It will be heartbreaking to add another hero to the Utah Law Enforcement Memorial. I know our team at the Utah 1033 Foundation will be reaching out to the Romrell family to assist with financial support and other resources. Whether it was in police blues or the uniform of a United States Marine, David Romrell fought valiantly to preserve peace and protect us, our community, and nation. May God now grant peace to his soul and comfort to his family and friends.
