Falmouth Police Law Enforcement Memorial

The Falmouth Police Law Enforcement Memorial page is dedicated to those who have died in the line of duty while serving as a Falmouth Police Officer.

Memorial Garden

Thanks to the contributions of generous community partners, the Falmouth Police Department built a Police Memorial Garden. Each year on National Police Memorial Day we honor the memory of Officer Samuel Pierce, and all law enforcement officers who have fallen in the line of duty. Please join us for a ceremony at the Falmouth Police Department on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
