Candlelight Vigil Set to Remember Fallen Officers

The Kirksville Police Department and Adair County Sheriff’s Department are hoping you will join them tomorrow evening at a Candle Light Vigil in honor of officers nationwide who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The Vigil will be held at the Adair County Court House (on the South side) at 7:30 pm tomorrow.

May 15th is National Police Officer Memorial Day. On average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 57 hours. Adair County Prosecutor Matt Wilson and Pastor Graeme Golding from the Crossing will be speaking at the event. If it’s raining, they’ll move the event indoors.
