Peace officers honored at state capitol
The Montana Department of Justice will host a Peace Officers Memorial Day ceremony on May 15 in the rotunda of the state Capitol.
The event will begin at noon and the public may attend.
It will honor the fallen heroes who have given their lives to uphold public safety throughout the state’s history and thank current and past Montana law enforcement officers for their service.
The ceremony will include Denny DeLaittre, former Montana Highway Patrol trooper and father of Trooper David DeLaittre, who was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Dec. 1, 2010.
The Montana Department of Justice will be honoring law enforcement officers at events and on social media throughout next week, which is National Police Week. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and its calendar week as National Police Week.
