Memorial Remembers Officer with Azle Ties

The Azle Police Department hosted a memorial service Monday, May 15, in Central Park, in observance of Police Officer Memorial Day. In addition to honoring fallen law enforcement officers everywhere, the service honored Abilene Police Officer Billy A. Rose, who died in a motorcycle crash while on duty in 1952. Rose had family ties to the Azle community.  Above: Azle police officers salute as members of Azle High School’s Civil Air Patrol Hornet Squadron post the colors.                            Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman
