Three Names Engraved on Oregon’s Fallen Law Enforcement Memorial Wall


SALEM, Ore. (KTVZ) — An honor guard stood guard during a burning ceremony Monday at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training as the names of three deceased officers were added at the Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Wall.

The tradition was started a few years ago to honor the dead who are added to the wall each year before the memorial ceremony at DPSST.

On this day, the names of S. Allen Burdic of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, EOW (end of shift) 3/11/21; Carl L. Frazier of the Lane County Sheriff’s Office, EOW 10/09/1979; and John R. Burright of the Oregon State Police, EOW 04/05/21 were added.

A member of each agency’s honor guard stood watch while the name of their agency’s deceased officer was carefully engraved in the state memorial.

The names of the three deceased officers have been approved by the Public Safety Standards and Training Board for addition to the state memorial. The memorial honors all fallen municipal, county, state, tribal and federal officers. The wall now includes the names of 192 deceased law enforcement officers from Oregon dating back to the 1860s.

The Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony is scheduled for May 3 this year and will be an abbreviated version of the traditional ceremony, with speakers, a roll call and some of the usual traditions. A small number of guests will be present.
