The New Haven Police Department on Wednesday paid tribute to the 19 officers who have been killed in the line of duty over the almost 150 years of the force’s history. Family and descendents of the fallen officers gathered at NHPD headquarters for the unveiling of a new memorial honoring the officers. The wall of the memorial features photographs or badges of the men, with plaques describing them. “The wall is a reminder of how noble, and precarious, their work is,” memorial designer and city capital-projects director William MacMullen said, according to the New Haven Independent. “Let’s think of these 19 as still out there, on patrol in the city.” The first officer to be killed was Thomas Cummins, in 1885, and the last was Robert Fumiatti, in 2007.
