SBPD Officers attend Memorial

Officer Derek Jennerjohn and Officer Andrew Crabb attended the 27th Annual Wisconsin Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony at the State Capital in Madison on Friday, May 19. The ceremony honors officers killed in the line of duty.  Three names were added to the Memorial this year.  

Governor Walker spoke at the ceremony, saying, “From Beloit to the Apostle Islands, from Ellsworth to Washington Island – law enforcement officers all throughout our great state risk their lives every day to protect us from harm.  We owe all of our law enforcement officers sincere thanks every day for their selfless service. Today, however, we offer special, heartfelt thanks to those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for our safety by laying down their lives in the line of duty. We honor them, and keep their loved ones in our thoughts and prayers
