County leaders honored 14 Onslow County public safety officers who died during duty at the county’s annual memorial ceremony on Tuesday.
The ceremony was scaled down from previous years because of the pandemic and largely broadcast virtually.
The ceremony remembered police officers, deputies, firefighters, and EMT’s who died during service.
Law enforcement officials who attended called it a great way to remember those who served, no matter the kind of service to the community. “We worked with those men that gave their lives, and we honor them and what they did for our community,” said Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller. “So, it’s very important to also recognize the fact that law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, EMTs, and dispatchers are one team. We are one family and we help each other out.”
