FULTON, NY – May 12-18 marks Police Week, a time dedicated to recognizing the men and women in law enforcement who safeguard the rights and freedoms of the citizens of Fulton.
“The police are greatly overlooked until you need them,” said Councilor Pete Franco.
At Tuesday’s Common Council meeting, Mayor Ron Woodward presented the proclamation to Fire and Police Commissioner Alan DeLine.
As stated in the proclamation, flags will be flown at half-staff on May 15 to honor officers past and present.
“This is for the police officers in our community who are a wonderful group,” said DeLine. “We’re lucky we have such a good police department.”
“They’re the unsung heroes who don’t get enough credit,” Councilor Macner added.
The Veterans’ Council will also spend time over the next two days placing flags on gravestones in the different cemeteries in this area.
DeLine said they expect to place almost 2,000 flags.
