Fallen Officer Plaques

SLCPD Bronze Street Plaques Mark Sacrifice of Fallen Officers

The Salt Lake City Police Department dedicated its first Fallen Officer plaque Tuesday, May 17, 2011, marking the location at which an officer was killed in the line of duty.

“These markers serve to honor those killed in the line of duty while reminding the public of the cost of a civil society,” Police Chief Chris Burbank said of the new bronze memorials.

The first plaque recognized Brigham H. Honey Jr. and William N. Huntsman, who were killed in the line of duty February 16, 1924, at 337 S. Main Street. It was made possible by contributions from the Salt Lake City Police Mutual Aid Association, a benevolent aid group, and Glen Saxton, who granted permission to place the plaque on the Judge Building.

The Salt Lake City Police History Project seeks to honor all 24 Fallen Officers in this manner. If you are interested in supporting the Fallen Officer Memorial Plaque program, please contact Lt. Mike Ross, (801) 799-3660 or michael.ross@slcgov.com, for more information.

“We recognize these individuals not because they have lost their lives,but how they chose to live in the service of others.”
