Monday, June 4, 2018

Today, Monday, June 4, 2018 marks the sixth anniversary of Springfield Police Officer Kevin Ambrose’s passing. Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Police Commissioner John R. Barbieri have issued the following statements:

“We must never forget and always remember Officer Ambrose’s heroic efforts to save a young mother and her child. He made the ultimate sacrifice in order to secure their lives – this is what our police officers do day in and day out without any fanfare,” said Mayor Sarno. “Out of respect to the Ambrose family’s wishes, there will be no formal event, but Commissioner Barbieri and the Springfield Police Department will once again mark the anniversary with respectful protocol at our Memorial Monument that honors our police officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I ask those who are able, as I will do, to please stop by this Memorial Monument to pay their respects to a fallen hero. May God rest Kevin’s soul and all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and May God protect our men and women in blue.”

Commissioner Barbieri said, “June 4th marks six years since the date of our tragic loss and the heroic sacrifice of Officer Kevin Ambrose. In accordance with the wishes of the family of Officer Ambrose, the date will be commemorated by the placing of a marked cruiser with blue lights activated. There will be a moment of radio silence and reflection of Kevin’s heroism and his family’s loss. Please keep Kevin, his family and his extended police family in your prayers.”
