On September 21st at 6:00 PM there will be a memorial service at the Mt. Juliet Police Department for security officers killed in the line of duty during the last year.  Unfortunately, a large number of our colleagues are hurt or killed as they protect persons and property across our country.  The sponsor of this event, Private Officer International, is an organization which tracks security officer casualties and was established to support the security industry, in particular the individual officer.  If possible, try to support their efforts by attending the service and displaying tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
