Charleston Animal Society held a ceremony on May 15, 2018 to honor all police officers, human and canine, who have served this great nation. The presentation took place at Charleston Animal Society to commemorate National Police Week and National Peace Officers Memorial Day.
A new bench on the animal care campus was unveiled. It will recognize the contributions of those who have served in law enforcement and public safety agencies. It will also honor the fallen, both human and canine, who have given their lives in the line of duty.
Those in attendance included 30 police officers, North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey, North Charleston Police Chief Reggie Burgess and Charleston Animal Society staff, members of the public and the Board of Directors.
Please come spend time on the bench and reflect on the work and sacrifice made by police and their K9 partners. Click Here to Watch a Video of the Ceremony.
