A special Thanks

The Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association extends its extreme thanks to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office for hosting the 32nd Annual Law Enforcement Ecumenical Service held on Sunday May 4, 2014 in Oakwood.

We would also like to thank and recognize the survivors, the departments who have lost an officer and others for their continued support of our mission. Without your support LEMA’s mission would be a difficult one.
