Morgan County law enforcement memorial service to be held Tuesday morning

MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A Morgan County law enforcement memorial service will be held Tuesday morning at 8:30 on the front lawn of the Morgan County Courthouse.

Sheriff Ana Franklin says they will be honoring all of our fellow officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, since 1905  two Morgan County deputies have died on duty and the Decatur police have lost four in their department's history.

The departments have both been very fortunate because they haven't had any deaths on duty in more than three decades.
