The Clearwater Police Department and Fraternal Order of Police Clearwater Lodge 10 held its 37th annual Police Memorial Service on May 18th. The members of the Clearwater Police Department and its members’ organization gather each year to commemorate those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the line of duty. A special tribute was given to those 12 Florida law enforcement officers and K-9s who were killed during 2017. The program also remembers every year Clearwater’s four blue heroes–Officers Harry Conyers, Peter Price, John Passer, and Ronald Mahony. Chief Dan Slaughter, Lodge President Steven Squillante, and I spoke to those present, and the keynote address was given by Pinellas County Judge Joshua Riba.
