The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office is proud to be part of the design and construction of the Fayette County Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial. This black granite monument, emblazoned with the thin blue line, emblematic of the role of police officers in protecting our society from the forces of darkness and evil, will be placed on the front lawn of the Fayette County Courthouse once it is completed. The names of the seven law enforcement officers from Fayette County who have been killed in the line of duty will be engraved on this monument as a permanent reminder of their supreme sacrifice. While it is our fervent hope and prayer that it never becomes necessary, there is additional space on this monument to add the names of any Fayette County law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in the future.

 

The cost of this memorial is $7,000.00. Municipalities across Fayette County have made contributions toward the construction of this monument, as has Fayette County Memorial Lodge #118 of the Fraternal Order of Police. We are now reaching out to the businesses and citizens of Fayette County we proudly serve and asking for assistance in completing this project. It is our hope that, with the support of the Fayette County Community, we will be able to unveil this solemn monument at the annual Police Officers’ Memorial Office, scheduled for noon on Monday, May 15, 2017 at the Fayette County Courthouse. Anyone wishing to contribute towards the construction of this monument should make a check payable to the “Fayette County Commission” and indicate on the memo line that this is a donation towards the construction of the “Fayette County Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial.” Contributions should be mailed to the attention of Fayette County Administrator Deborah Berry at P.O. Box 307, Fayetteville, WV 25840. Your support for this project is sincerely appreciated by all of the current and former law enforcement officers of Fayette County, and by the families of the fallen officers whose names are engraved on this memorial.
