Boozman Honors Law Enforcement

John Boozman

In recognition of National Police Week, Arkansas U.S. Senator John Boozman honored the service and sacrifice of our law enforcement community and reflected upon the lives of Arkansans whose names are newly added to the walls of the National Law Enforcement Memorial.

Four Arkansans are among the list of 360 members of law enforcement whose names have been added to the memorial:

Drew County Sheriff’s Deputy Timothy Braden
Lieutenant Patrick Weatherford of the Newport Police Department
Yell County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Mainhart
Turrell Police Chief Keith Bradford Sr. 

The following are Senator Boozman’s remarks as prepared for delivery:

Mr. President, this is National Police Week. A time for recognizing the men and women in law enforcement who serve and protect our nation.

National Police Week is a solemn occasion to honor those who tragically lost their lives while serving in the line of duty.

The names of those men and women are carved on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Memorial.

Each year during this week, families and colleagues of the fallen travel to our nation’s capital for this special commemoration.

This year 360 names will be added including four officers who served the citizens of Arkansas.

We remember Arkansans whose names are newly etched onto the walls of this treasured memorial. Now, I would like to recognize these heroes.     MORE
