BEND, OR -- The name of a Bend Police Sergeant will be added to the state’s Fallen Law Enforcement Officer Memorial, next spring.

 

Sgt. John Lawrence suffered a fatal heart attack at home, less than three hours after completing his shift, in which he responded to a bank robbery. His 2014 death was determined to be in the line of duty, because it occurred within 24 hours of engaging in an on-duty situation.

 

Lawrence was a 10-year veteran of Bend Police and served with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office for more than four years prior to shifting to Bend. His name will be added during a ceremony in May, along with Ashland Police Officer Malcus Williams who died in March 2018, after suffering a heart attack while responding to a domestic disturbance. They take the number of names honored at Oregon's memorial to 185.
