In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, D.C. to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
In Isanti County, we honor the four fallen officers who worked honorably for our community. In Isanti specifically, Town Marshal Frank Dahlin was shot in Isanti and died two days later in a hospital in the Twin Cities in 1926. For more information on Marshal Dahlin visit http://mnlema.org/fallen_insert.php?officer_id=199. Let’s remember our fallen officers.
