Cache County Fallen Officers

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

In commemoration of this, we remember the officers of the law who have died while serving the citizens of Cache Valley and elsewhere. The following is a list of those that I'm aware of in the Valley:

Willard R. Dahle, Logan City Police Department, died May 4, 1929.

Deputy Alma P. Sorenson, Cache County Sheriff's Office, August 27, 1959.

Officer Edwin L. Edwards, Logan City Police Department, August 27, 1959.

Lieutenant James R. Merrill, Cache County Sheriff's Office, January 5, 1974.

Deputy Charles H. Dickey, Jr., Cache County Sheriff's Office, March 18, 1984.
