Homecoming Week at NBHS
Wood County Police Memorial Service to honor two from NB
Posting Date: 05/12/2014
The Wood County Police Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday May 14 2014, at 12:00 Noon, on the front steps of the Wood County Court House.
The police memorial pays tribute to the officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty over the years here in Wood County. There has been a total of 12 officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty dating back to 1896.
This year, we will be paying tribute to the two North Baltimore Officers. Back in 1896, Patrolman Jesse Baker was killed in the line of duty, and in 1932, Marshall Jay Davis, was shot and killed while on duty.
This service is sponsored by the Wood County Fraternal Order of Police and the Wood County Commissioners. Officers from each of the various Police Departments will be participating. In case of rain, this service will be held in the Atrium of the Court House.
