Ceremony Wednesday to honor fallen tri-county law enforcement officers

NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - A ceremony Wednesday at Park Circle will honor law enforcement in the tri-county who have died in the line of duty.

The first tri-county officer died in 1879 when Charleston police Sgt. John Harlow was shot and killed at the intersection of King and Calhoun Streets.

The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. and includes guest speakers, a reading of the names of the fallen, a 21-gun salute, a flag-folding ceremony and a moment of silence.

A full list of fallen officers in the tri-county area can be found here. 

It's scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
