Local law enforcement officials, including officer (from l-r) Cassie Mosley, officer Adam Wall, WPPD Chief Lonnie Carroll, officer Troy Tucker and Precinct 3 Constable Robert Tisdale met at the flagpole near the veteran’s park memorial along Highway 80 July 7 for a moment of silence to commemorate the one-year anniversary of an attack that took the lives of five Dallas officers.

Last year, one day after the shooting in downtown Dallas that took the lives of five police officers and wounded numerous others, Van Zandt County came together in a prayer vigil to honor the fallen and wounded Dallas and DART police officers.
