Fallen Greenland Police Chief's Name To Be Added To National Memorial

Greenland Police Department

The name of Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney will be added to a national memorial for fallen officers in Washington, D.C.

The Greenland Police Department learned recently that Maloney's name will be part of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, which is in an area known as Judiciary Square.

A ceremony recognizing Maloney and other officers who have died in the line of duty is scheduled for May 15, 2013.

The 48-year-old Maloney was shot to death during an April 12 drug raid -- just days before he was scheduled to retire. Four other officers were wounded before the shooter killed his girlfriend and himself.

The Portsmouth Herald reports that plans are in the works to send some officers to attend the memorial ceremony.
