Fallen Greenland Police Chief's Name Added To National Memorial

Greenland Police Department

Fallen Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney’s name was added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. this morning.

Officers from the Greenland Police Department were in the nation’s capital Wednesday morning to attend the National Peace Officers Memorial Service.

President Barack Obama was the keynote speaker.

He encouraged people not to wait until tragedy strikes to thank first responders for their service.

“The 143 fallen officers we honor today put themselves on the front lines of that fight, to preserve that quality of community, and to protect the roots of our greatness.”

Chief Maloney was killed in the line of duty in April of last year during a drug raid. He was set to retire eight days later.

Michael serves as NHPR's Program Director. Michael came to NHPR in 2012, working as the station's newscast producer/reporter. In 2015, he took on the role of Morning Edition producer. Michael worked for eight years at The Telegraph of Nashua, covering education and working as the metro editor.
