Sgt. Craig Johnson’s Name to be Added to National Law Enforcement Memorial

Beverly Cantrell - October 14, 2021 6:47 am

Fallen Tulsa Police Sergeant Craig Johnson‘s name will be added to a national memorial in Washington D.C. this week.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Wall contains the names of thousands of officers across the country who have died in the line of duty.

Sgt. Johnson was shot and killed during a traffic stop in June 2020.

Tulsa police raised money to send Johnson’s family, and Officer Aurash Zarkeshan, who was injured in the same shooting that killed Sgt. Johnson, to the ceremony.

The memorial posted a video of some of the families of fallen officers arriving in Washington D.C. yesterday for the ceremony.

There will also be a candlelight vigil on the National Mall Thursday night.
