Thanks to Lt Boucher, we are honoring our local fallen heroes in a different way this year. Twelve candles for twelve officers and deputies killed in the line of duty in Wilmington and New Hanover County. While we couldn't be together to honor them in person due to COVID-19, Officers you are not forgotten.

Thanks to a grant from The Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) we were able to repair the lights at our memorial. Our thin blue line shines bright again, in remembrance of those we’ve lost.

This year’s proceeds support http://BlueHelp.org. Blue Honor, Educate, Lead, and Prevent’ s mission is to reduce mental health stigma through education, advocate for benefits for those suffering from post-traumatic stress, acknowledge the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers we lost to suicide, assist officers in their search for healing, and to bring awareness to suicide and mental health issues.

Please help us support BlueHelp.org as they put names and faces to men and women who have died because their emotional injuries became too much to bear.

“It is not how they died that mattered, it is how they lived”

Let’s see if we can help support one of own in her time of need!

From Nikki Yost Weston (daughter of the late Captain Yost):
As many of you know my dad Retired Captain Buster Yost WPD passed away this passed October. My oldest daughter Amy and dad where very close. He was more of a father figure than Grandaddy to Amy. Amy has been struggling since Dads passing especially with her up and coming 5th grade graduation, this will be the first major event he will not be there for. I was kinda wondering if any of my Dads friends could please potentially come even for just a few minutes to give her some support. Her graduation is at Castle Hayne Elementary school on June 12th 8:30 am. Thank you in advance.
