On Wednesday May 23, 2018 the Kissimmee Police Department, St. Cloud Police Department, Osceola County Corrections and Osceola County Sheriff’s Office came together to honor all of the fallen officers from Osceola County within the last year.

Kissimmee Police Officer Matthew Baxter and Sergeant Sam Howard, who were killed in the line of duty last August, were also honored in the ceremony. Keynote speaker Colonel Danny R. McKnight spoke of what it meant to be an American and what it meant to be a police officer.

Five wreaths were placed, one for each department and one for all of the fallen officers in the county. The Osceola County School of The Arts sang the National Anthem and performed other songs for all who attended the ceremony. #PositivelyOsceola #OsceolaCares #KPD #BacktheBlue
