Davenport Police remembers 4 officers killed on duty for National Police Week


A time to remember the ultimate sacrifice made by Davenport officers.

The city’s police and law enforcement from Scott County gathered for an annual memorial service this morning.

It’s after 2018 saw more than 140 police line-of-duty deaths across the country and nearly 40 so far this year.

The service also remembered four Davenport officers killed on duty — and offered continual support to their families.  

“It’s really important for us as a law enforcement family to make sure that the families of those who’ve we’ve lost know that we will never forget. We will never forget their sacrifice and that we’ll always be here for them.” Davenport Police Chief Paul Sikorski said.

This is one of the National Police Week events in the Quad Cities.

There is a Blue Mass on Tuesday night at St. Paul’s on Rusholme Street in Davenport starting at 5 p.m.
