Perry County Memorial

A project is underway to remember some of Perry County’s greatest heroes and their service.Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen says after a long time in the making, a fallen officer memorial is almost a reality.”This is been something on my mind for probably 10 or 15 years, to try to get a memorial for fallen officers in Perry County,” said Allen. “There is a lot of people that laid down the ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Hazard and Perry County.”Throughout Allen’s researching, organizing and planning, he found 23 officers died in the line of duty in the last 120 years in Perry County.He hopes to have the memorial completed by this summer.
