Mississippi Honors Fallen Officers

August 23, 2013

Attorney General Jim Hood joined Mississippi Chiefs of Police on May 13 to host the fourth annual “Mississippi Fallen Law Enforcement Officer’s Candlelight Vigil”. The event was held at the Statewide Fallen Officers Memorial between the Sillers and Gartin Justice buildings off High Street in downtown Jackson.

“Mississippi lost too many heroes in the line of duty last year,” said Attorney General Hood. “We honor each one of their sacrifices, along with that of the other 221 officers on our memorial.”

Mississippi’s most recent fallen officers are:

RANDY JUNIOR BOYKIN 03/19/2013 Chief of Police Enterprise Police Department.

ERIC TYRONE SMITH SR 04/04/2013 Detective Jackson Police Department

BRUCE DANIEL JACOB 07/20/2013 Police Officer Jackson Police Department

“We hope we never have to engrave another name on this memorial wall,” said Ken Winter, Executive Director of the Mississippi Association of Chiefs of Police.

The keynote speaker for the event was Governor Phil Bryant.
