The Arizona Department of Public Safety Honor Guard and Col. Milstead represented the Department at National Police Week in Washington, D.C. to honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. This year, in particular, was an important year for DPS with the passing of Trooper Tyler Edenhofer on July 25, 2018.
Through a multitude of events, the DPS Honor Guard was there to support Trooper Edenhofer’s family. Trooper Edenhofer was recognized nationally for his sacrifice and was added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, joining the other 29 troopers DPS has lost in the line of duty. We honor Tyler and the other brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Please take a minute to watch our recap of the week of events.
