Peace Officers' Memorial Day Observed

by Chris Cain
May 16, 2019

On Peace Officers’ Memorial Day, the sun came out to shine upon Holliston’s finest as they paid tribute to their fallen comrades.

Chief Stone and many members of the Holliston Police Department fell into ranks bright and early to continue an important tradition here in town.  Max, Holliston’s Canine Officer, was on his best behavior.

SGT Matthew Waugh read a roll call of Holliston’s fallen officers including Officer John Johnson who was killed in the line of duty. 

Following a wreath laying ceremony at the Holliston Police Memorial stone at police headquarters, a procession of police vehicles to St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Upon arrival the honor party marched to several graves to pay respects to the officers buried at St. Mary’s Cemetery. 

The last stop was at the grave of Officer Johnson. 

There, family, friends, former officers including Chief Bill George and Chief John Moore, and local dignitaries joined the honor party.  Father Mark provided the prayer and Selectman Jay Marsden read a proclamation designating May 15, 2019 Peace Officers’ Memorial Day in Holliston.

This was the first time that I have witnessed this remembrance.  What a fitting tribute executed with great dignity and respect.
