LCSO Fallen Deputy Memorial
The LCSO Fallen Deputy Memorial is designed to honor those deputies and K-9 killed in the line of duty. Beginning on February 12, 1972, and until October 22, 2006, eight deputies and a K-9 have been killed. These deputies have left behind family and loved ones. Their sacrifice and that of their families is in itself a dedication to their memory.
This memorial is a remembrance of these heroic deputies. It is designed to recall each one of these heroes. The three black granite tablets entomb their lives forever. The mourning deputy kneeling before the memorial reminds us of the never ending anguish. The K-9 killed in the line of duty oversees and protects their memory. The black granite pavers surrounding the memorial reflect upon the hope for the future. The granite benches allow us time for contemplation.
