Fallen officer's viewing, memorial set for next week

ST. PETERSBURG — The viewing and memorial for St. Petersburg police Officer David S. Crawford, who died in the line of duty on Monday, is set for next week.

Both services will take place at the Baptist Church of St. Petersburg at 1900 Gandy Blvd. That was the same church that hosted services last month for Sgt. Thomas J. Baitinger and K-9 Officer Jeffrey A. Yaslowitz, who both died in the line of duty on Jan. 24. More than 10,000 attended the service.

The viewing for Officer Crawford is set for Monday from 5 to 8 p.m. The memorial service will be held Tuesday starting at 11 a.m.

Details of the procession are still forthcoming.

Donations to the officer's family can be made to the Officer David Crawford Memorial Fund at any local Wachovia Bank branch or to Sun Coast Law Enforcement Charities at 14141 46th St. N., Suite 1205, Clearwater, FL 33762.

Call (727) 532-1722.
