ROSEBURG, OR. -- Douglas County law enforcement agencies held a Peace Officer Memorial Ceremony on Tuesday as part of National Police Week.

Though they’ve held several before, this is only the second year that this memorial has been held with the memorial wall that was installed in 2016, honoring five fallen officers.

Officers from Winston, Roseburg, Sutherlin, and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office were all at the ceremony.

Brad O’Dell with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said the support from the community is humbling.

“It’s very humbling to see the turnout that was here today with members of the public and other emergency responders that came today. It means a lot, not only to us, but to the family of the fallen, as well as the memory of our fallen officers.”

Officer Ashley Alliman with Sutherlin Police said days like today are all about family.

“It’s not just a career. It’s not just a job. We actually view it all as family. Anyone in uniform that has ever worn the badge or is currently wearing the badge is my family. So, to be a part of this is to be a part of, basically, a family reunion and a way of supporting my brothers and sisters.”

National Police Week runs through Saturday, May 19th.
