TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CAPITOL NEWS SERVICE) - Fallen correctional officers were honored Wednesday morning by the new Florida Department of Corrections Secretary.
A total of 52 Florida correctional officers have died in the line of duty. Their sacrifices are remembered each year at the Fallen Officer Memorial. (WJHG) One of the officers who lost their lives in 2018 died supervising inmates, while another died helping after Hurricane Michael.
Correctional Officers put their lives on the line every day, often dealing with the worst society has to offer.
“They have rightly earned our love and respect and for this, we honor their memory,” Chaplain Johnny Frambo said.
