CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla - At the funeral of Sergeant Michael Wilson, it was the sound of trumpets that celebrated his life and service.

Tuesday morning, it was the sound of a drill.

"It's extremely important that their selflessness of their actions goes on record," said Lieutenant Keri DeHart, President of the Fraternal Order of Police.

The 21-year veteran of the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office died in the line of duty last year, responding to a domestic disturbance call.

And through this plaque, his selflessness is now set in stone outside the fraternal order of police lodge.

"There's a lot of emotion that goes along with this. An extreme sense of loss, a strong sense of duty and obligation," said DeHart.

Wilson's dedication is just one piece of today's Peace Officers Memorial celebration in Charlotte County.

A time deputies say is never easy, but absolutely necessary.

"There is no sense to who it is going to be or when it's going to be, it's by the grace of god, whether it's your name or someone else's that goes on there," said DeHart.

It is at the FOP lodge on Harper Avenue in Charlotte Harbor. The street will be blocked off so deputies say you can park off Pinnacle Street for free.
