Cop Card of the Week (April 29th - May 5th): Trainor Memorial
(Sponsored by Brick-Wall Corporation, available at Police Headquarters)
Officer William A. Trainor, Badge #32, dies on May 9, 1990, after 14 years of service with the Lacey Township Police Department. Officer Trainor made it a routine to run after his shift to maintain his physical fitness and was struck by a passing motor vehicle while running on West Lacey Road.
On October, 12, 1991, a memorial wall was erected adjacent to the front parking lot of the Lacey Township Police Department. This memorial not only honors Officer Trainor, but also those officers who have faithfully served our community with pride, honor, and professionalism
