A year ago, this bronze sculpture at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Officer Memorial. This sheriff’s tribute includes 61 names of lives given in the line of duty. Three bronze sculptures were added to the wall. The sheriff’s tribute shows 2 officers flanking the wall, and one officer laying a rose at the site. The sheriff’s memorial also shows an illuminated thin blue line.
This memorial also includes a Forever Flame. This bronze sculpture is always burning, to remind visitors of the sacrifices that officers make. This memorial honors and respect all of the fallen officers.
This project took over a year from start to the final install. Jacksonville holds a ceremony every year to honor the LODD in the community. I am honored to be able to play a part in showing my respect for my brothers and sisters in blue who gave everything to serve and protect.
