Rep. Clyde Honors Fallen Jackson County Officer During National Police Week
Washington, May 12, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC — In honor of National Police Week, Congressman Andrew Clyde (GA-09) attended House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) second annual “Back the Blue Bike Tour,” which stopped at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. At the Memorial, Rep. Clyde laid a wreath in honor of Jackson County Deputy Lena Marshall.
In November 2021, Deputy Marshall tragically lost her life after responding to a domestic violence call that spiraled into a shootout. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. now bears Deputy Marshall’s name (location: 49-W-33) to honor her sacrifice.
“Deputy Lena Marshall made the ultimate sacrifice while serving to keep my home county and community safe,” said Clyde. “No amount of words can adequately describe Northeast Georgians’ gratitude for Deputy Marshall’s dedication, service, and bravery; the Ninth will always remember her selfless sacrifice. May God bless Deputy Marshall’s family and fellow Jackson County officers, and may God bless all of our heroes in blue who put their lives on the line each and every day to keep us safe.”
