It was a solemn day at Moosehaven on May 2 as law enforcement officers gathered to pay their respects to the fallen heroes who lost their lives while serving their community.

Members from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Green Cove Springs Police Department, Orange Park Police Department, and Clay County District Schools Police stood in solidarity with other law enforcement agencies to honor the bravery and sacrifice of these heroes. The tribute was for the fallen and their families who continue to carry the burden of their loss.
