MA State Police Honor Late Troopers in Memorial Video
A touching memorial montage has been released by the Massachusetts State Police paying honor to those Troopers who have passed over the past year.
The Former Massachusetts State Trooper Association and the Massachusetts State Police are proud to present our Annual Memorial Service honoring those Troopers who have recently passed.
A statement from the MSP via social media highlights the difficulty dealing with struggles over the last many months as COVID-19 has forced them to reinvent their previous ideas and practices. During the pandemic, gathering to honor Troopers who had come before created hurdles to fighting the spread of the virus. So again, they sought a way to reimagine years of tradition.
"As Troopers, we must always adapt and overcome adversity which often may be unforeseen. This year as we continue to strive to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and the risks it presents to parts of the population, we have produced a virtual memorial service. The members listed during the Roll-Call have passed between June 1, 2019, and May 31, 2021." - MSP
