 We have launched an endeavor to put together a committee to research, design, fund raise and get put into place a memorial for fallen law enforcement and fire fighter brothers and sisters.  I have spoke with Honorary Member Judge Executive Al Mattingly who is in full support of this project and has agreed to give us an area on the Daviess Courthouse lawn for the memorial to be placed on.  I have been in law enforcement for over 19 years and have always wondered why Owensboro / Daviess County does not have anything in place to honor or even mention fallen public servants who have gave the ultimate sacrifice for this community.  I completely support and advocate the memorials for military veterans and fallen veterans, but also think those that have fallen domestically at home for their community should also be honored. This was brought before Brother Mattingly and he wholeheartedly started moving on things to assist in this vision.  There will be a public memorial place on the courthouse lawn and a private one specifically for FOP 16 located at the lodge.  You will be seeing more on this as it develops with city/county law enforcement agencies and fire departments.
