    Lakeland Police Fallen Heroes Memorial
    Hundreds of citizens gathered at the Lakeland Police Department on Monday, March 20, for the Lakeland Police Fallen Heroes Memorial Dedication Ceremony. The Memorial, located at the entrance of the station,  is a beautiful site that honors Lakeland’s five fallen officers: Patrolman William Barnett, Patrolman Thomas Nicholson, Officer Eugene DeBerry, Officer Carl Cushman and Officer Arnulfo Crispin. 

    This year’s theme—Strength. Resilience. Justice.—reflects this vision of the future. One in which all victims are strengthened by the response they receive, organizations are resilient in response to challenges, and communities are able to seek collective justice and healing.  More information.
