Georgia Law Enforcement moving Memorial to visit Heard County

The Blue Knights Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club along with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) will be bringing the Memorial Wall to Heard County on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 10:00 a.m eastern time.

This wall includes the names of all law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty. The wall currently contains 653 names.

Ten officers were killed in the line of duty in 2011 and these names will be added to the wall before it begins the tour in March. The Memorial Wall will visit each community that lost an officer.

The Heard County sheriff’s office suffered the tragic loss of a deputy on March 3, 2011. Deputy Willie Amos Cammon was killed in a motor vehicle accident when his patrol car was struck head on by another vehicle.

“Deputy Cammon was truly a great officer and is deeply missed by our agency. It takes a very special person to be a law enforcement officer and Deputy Cammon exhibited all these fine qualities,” – Sheriff Ross Henry.

The moving memorial will be on display at the Heard County sheriff’s office on Saturday, March 3, 2012 to honor Deputy Cammon. The ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. to unveil Deputy Cammon’s name on the wall.

Please plan to attend and join your local law enforcement community in honoring Deputy Cammon and all other officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty while serving their communities.
