year we will mark 15 years since Grapevine Police Officer Darren Medlin was
killed in the line of duty. Instead of our usual ceremony outside our
building, this year we are holding our annual remembrance ceremony at Cowboys
Golf Club in Grapevine, at the conclusion of the Darren Medlin Memorial Golf
Tournament on June 12, 2019 (approximately 1pm).
Police recently updated our police badges and badge numbers (so now officer’s
badge numbers reflect their order of when they joined the PD, so the first
officer is badge number 1, and so on). To mark this year’s anniversary,
we are gifting Darren’s family with our new police badge, made with Officer
Medlin’s new badge number. We are also presenting a memorial chair to the
department with his badge, along with a memorial challenge coin and plaques for
Officer Medlin’s widow and mother.
ceremony will take place in the dining area inside the Cowboys Golf Club.
Space is limited, but there should be enough room for some cameras to set
up and plug into the podium mic. We anticipate the ceremony to start
around 1pm, but the time is fluid depending on when everyone finishes with the
golf tournament. We suggest everyone be in place by 12:45.
me know if you plan to attend so I can make sure we have enough space.
