|Police week activities planned|
Local law enforcement agencies will conduct a number of events next week in conjunction with 2010 Northeast Louisiana Police Week.
National Police Week is held every year in May to honor the men and women who risk their lives to ensure the safety of residents in communities throughout the United States.
President John Kennedy signed law in 1962 designating May 15 as Peace Officers' Memorial Day, and the week surrounding it as National Police Week.
The week also provides an opportunity for special remembrance of officers who were killed in the line of duty
St. Matthew Catholic Church will kick off Police Week activities with a Blue Mass service at 10 a.m. Monday, May 10.
On Tuesday, May 11, a candlelight vigil will be held at 8 p.m. at Bastrop City Hall not far from where two officers were gunned down in 2007.
Detectives John Russell Smith and Charles "Chuck" Wilson of the Bastrop Police Department died as a result of the injuries they received in a shootout with gang members of the Aryan Circle.
Attorney General Buddy Caldwell will be the guest speaker at Bastrop's candlelight vigil.
A slate of events will be held Wednesday, including a 10 a.m. law enforcement appreciation service at First Baptist Church of West Monroe's worship center.
First West will honor officers later that day with a law enforcement dinner at Tennison Hall.
The city of Monroe's Top Cop Awards Banquet will be held 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 13, at Monroe's conference center.
Ouachita Parish Sheriff Royce Toney said Cpl. J.R. Searcy most likely will be honored at the Top Cop Awards Banquet.
Searcy was shot March 4 when he responded to an aggravated assault on Browning Road near Louisiana 34 in West Monroe. He died two days later at St. Francis Medical Center.
Searcy had served with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office for eight years.
On Friday, May 14, beginning at 10 a.m., the Monroe Police Department's "Fallen Heroes" Dedication and Wreath Laying Ceremony will take place at the police department.
The police department has plans to construct a memorial dedicated to Monroe officers killed in the line of duty.
The monument will be erected in the front courtyard of the police department and will bear the names of six police officers: W.J. Haynie, Paul Hilton, W. R. Roberts, Tom Watson, C. M. Earle and Ocie D. Howard.
The Brian K. Putman Memorial Golf Tournament will be at 1 p.m. Friday, May 14, at the Chennault Golf Course in Monroe.
