East Providence Police conduct candle light vigil for 10th annual memorial service

Posted

EAST PROVIDENCE — As part of National Police Week, the East Providence Police Department added a special spirit to the noteworthy 10th anniversary of its annual memorial service, conducting a night-time candle light vigil Tuesday evening, May 13, at its headquarters on Waterman Avenue.

National Police Week traces its roots to 1962, when President John F. Kennedy designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day. Tuesday night's service was once again sponsored by the East Providence Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 1 and the East Providence Fraternal Order of Police Associate Lodge 1.

East Providence Post and eastbayri.com photographer Tim Marshall captured the event through photos.
