15th Annual Imperial Valley Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony
To All Officials and Staff,
You are cordially invited to attend the 15th annual Imperial Valley Law Enforcement Memorial ceremony on Friday, May 5, 2023 beginning promptly at 7:00 pm.
A family and VIP reception will be held on the courthouse lawn beginning at 6:00 pm.
The Imperial Valley Law Enforcement Memorial (IVLEM) Committee was formed with the specific objective and purpose
of honoring our 44 Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty while serving in all federal, state, county, and city agencies in the Imperial Valley.
Every law enforcement agency within Imperial County has participated in this annual event.
It is the intent of the IVLEM Committee to continue this centralized annual ceremony to include all fallen officers of every agency throughout the history of Imperial County.
The Imperial Valley Historical Society has accepted the IVLEM as a subsection under their 501(c)3 classification, so that fund raising for the memorial may take place.
A motorcade of law enforcement vehicles will arrive at the court house in El Centro followed by a full honors ceremony.
Many surviving family members have been invited to participate.
Guest speakers will address the assembly followed by the reading of the names of each fallen Officer, a 21-gun salute, the
flag folding ceremony, taps, amazing grace, and a moment of silence where glow sticks will be lit to represent a candlelight vigil.
The IVLEM Board is inviting your entire staff to participate in this annual memorial.
Attached is a list of Imperial Valley fallen Officers and their agency affiliation.
– Please RSVP a list of ceremony attendees as well as any VIP’s from your agency or city so we will be able to accommodate seating arrangements.
Notifications should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
With the ceremony date rapidly approaching, the IVLEM Board thanks you for your support to respectfully honor our fallen Officers and their families
