It was a day of remembrance on Pittsburgh’s North Shore Saturday as fallen police officers were remembered at the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
Once again, tragedy hits western Pennsylvania law enforcement. The death of Officer John Dryer is the ninth fatal shooting of an officer since State Police Corporal Joseph Pokorny in 2005.
Several hundred people gathered in Shaler’s Kiwanis Park to honor one of their own. Penn Hills Police Officer Michael Crawshaw, a Shaler native, was shot and killed in the line of duty back in December of 2009.
Local law enforcement gathered on the North Shore to remember those who were killed in the line of duty.
