Fallen Officers, police honored on fateful day

“We are challenged every day to make sense or put things together that just don’t make sense,” Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich said to audience of law enforcers, community leaders and others gathered outside the city’s public safety center during a somber Fallen Officers Ceremony that took place steps away from where Biloxi Police Officer Robert McKeithen was gunned down two years ago today.

In some instances, Gilich told the group of law enforcers and community leaders outside the Lopez-Quave Public Safety Center, “you can’t make sense, but yet we, the Police Department and Fire Department, are challenged to do that and go forward every day.”

Gilich, Biloxi Police Chief John Miller and Patrolman Reuben Sabio, speaking in a closing prayer, acknowledged the day-to-day contributions and sacrifices made by police officers and their families.

Said Sabio in closing the 17-minute ceremony: Time is short. Tell people you love them.
