(DUBLIN, Ohio) – The Dublin Division of Police will host a Police Memorial Service on Thursday at 1 p.m. at the Dublin Justice Center, 6565 Commerce Parkway.
The event will be held under the arch at the entrance to the Justice Center and will recognize 30 officers from local law enforcement agencies who were killed in the line of duty since 1976.
Guest speaker for the event is former Morrow County Deputy Brandon Moore, who was involved in an on-duty shooting in 2010. Moore was responding to residents who wanted to complain about a neighbor growing marijuana. The deputy had just arrived on the residents’ land and had gotten out of his unmarked vehicle when the alleged marijuana farmer shot him four times. Though critically wounded, the deputy returned fire and wounded the suspect. Moore’s handgun would run out of bullets before his rounds finally stopped the suspect.
Dublin Police Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg said he is honored to have Moore speak on behalf of officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of protecting residents. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved inside the Justice Center.
