SAN ANGELO – On Friday, May 18, National Police Week, May 18-20, concluded with an ecumenical service at Sierra Vista United Methodist Church to honor all law enforcement officials.

 “Today we come together during National Police Week to remember the lives, the memories and the sacrifices of 55 officers who lost their lives this year in the line of duty” said Rev. Stan White, of Sierra Vista.

Rev. White stated that these officers and those in attendance, among them Police Chief, Frank Carter, and his police officers, live by the creed “to protect and serve” the communities in which they live." “We are reminded through these officers’ lives that how we live matters.”

Rev. Tommy Tallas, San Angelo Police Department, Chaplin, concluded the services with a prayer “. . . until evil is vanquished, until the oppressors are bound, until the meek inherit the earth, God is still looking for those who will stand in the gap who will put their lives between evil and the innocent.”
