Twin Ports Officers who died in the line of duty were honored Thursday afternoon at the Superior Police Department’s Annual Memorial Ceremony.

It’s part of National Police Week. 

Police Officers want the public to be aware of how dangerous their job can be. 

“We spend a lot of time helping people and enforcing laws that I think go unnoticed for a big part of the community.  But, when an officer loses his life in the line of duty, this is something that the public needs to know and understand is the ultimate sacrifice,” said Superior’s Deputy Chief, Matthew Markon. 

Never forget what they died for. 

“When an officer loses his life in the line of duty this is something that the public needs to know and understand is the ultimate sacrifice that an officer make by being someone whose willing to be out there and putting themselves in the line of danger and protecting the community at the same time,” Markon said.

Fourteen officers, in the Twin Ports, have fallen in the line of duty since 1911. 

Two line of duty deaths were recorded in Wisconsin this year.
