MUNISING– As part of the 24th annual Upper Peninsula Peace Officers Memorial, members of the community, Munising Public Schools and law enforcement of the U.P. and bordering agencies in Wisconsin and Ontario gathered to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in their services to the public.

“I’m not technically involved in law enforcement but in a small community we’re kind of all intertwined,” said Hon. Charles Nebel, Probate and Family Court Judge, Alger County. “My brother is a volunteer fireman and when he can’t be there, I work as a volunteer fireman as well. We know obviously all of the police officers. They know us. The small community is a really nice place to be there.”

Today’s memorial also recognized family members who lost loved ones.

“Wonderful opportunity for law enforcement to get together with families of the fallen is to make sure they know that our families, their families, their loved ones are never forgotten,” said F/Lt. Clint Michelin, Michigan State Police, Negaunee Post. “They never will be forgotten and we’re with them indeed in spirit forever.”
