Delaware County Council, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer, and Delaware County Sheriff Jerry L. Sanders, Jr. and other officials were honored to attend the Delaware County Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation’s 25th annual Day of Remembrance Ceremony on Wednesday, May 10, at Rose Tree Park.
The ceremony honors the police officers from Delaware County who were killed in the line of duty. Law enforcement from around the county gathered to pay tribute to the 47 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice protecting our community and whose names are now etched in the memorial at Rose Tree Park.
This year Clifton Heights Borough Officer John F. Burke was honored. Officer Burke bravely served with the Clifton Heights Police Department for nine years and passed away in January 2022 due to complications from COVID-19. He is survived by his wife and two children.
Thank you to all the members of law enforcement, and the survivors of fallen police officers that attended today.
We thank ALL law enforcement for their dedication to protecting and serving the residents of Delaware County.
