On Friday, May 11, the Oberlin Police Department will host the 2012 Lorain County Fallen Officers Memorial Service. The service will take place from 11 a.m. to noon on Tappan Square. In the event of rain, the service will take place in Finney Chapel.

Uniformed law enforcement officers from all Lorain County police departments will participate, as will the members of the Lorain County Sheriff’s Department, the Lorain Police Auxiliary, the Ohio State Highway Patrol Band, and the Pipes and Drums of the Cleveland Police Department. A ceremonial three-volley rifle salute, using blank cartridges, will occur during the service.

Professor Street between Lorain and College streets will be closed, and parking in the Finney Chapel lot will be restricted to college staff members who have Finney parking permits.

The Fallen Officers Memorial Service occurs each year during the month of May, with different cities in Lorain County hosting the event each year.
