Officers killed on duty to be honored Thursday

Citizen Staff Writer



Local law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty will be honored Thursday at the second annual Pima County Regional Law Enforcement Memorial Service.

Members of more than 30 federal, state, tribal and local law enforcement agencies are expected to attend.

Included in the memorial will be Tucson police officer Erik Hite, who was shot and killed in June as he pursued a man suspected of a cross-town shooting spree.

Hite will be added to the roll of 41 other Tucson area officers killed in the performance of their jobs since the 1800s.

The service, open to the public, will begin at 9 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Ave.

Former Surgeon General Richard Carmona will be master of ceremonies. Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard will be the keynote speaker.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
