Clearwater police pay tribute to fallen officers

CLEARWATER

Standing stiffly at attention, Clearwater police officers paid tribute to four of their fallen brothers Friday.

The city's 31st annual Police Memorial Service honored Clearwater's four fallen officers: Harry L. Conyers (1967), Peter M. Price (1969), John F. Passer (1970) and Ronald J. Mahony (1977).

The ceremony in downtown's Station Square Park featured an honor guard, a 21-gun salute, a wreath laying, a riderless horse and a solemn roll call of all Florida law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty last year.

U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, R-Indian Shores, delivered the keynote address. Local and state elected officials were also in attendance. The service is presented annually by the Clearwater Police Department and the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 10.
