Bucks County honors police officers


Continuing a solemn tradition, Bucks County officials gathered last Thursday to light a large blue wreath that will shine from the rotunda of the county’s administration building throughout the holiday season in remembrance of fallen police officers.

“This is a time of year when we think of happiness and loved ones, but, for many, there is a hole in their family,” Bucks County Commissioner Chairman Bob Harvie told a crowd of those from the law enforcement community.

New Hope Borough Police Chief Michael Cummings read the list of the 16 officers lost in Bucks County.
