Three Officers to be Honored Posthumously
Three Louisiana law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty this past
year will be honored by the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement in a special
Medal of Honor Ceremony on Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. at the

of Honor was established by the Louisiana Legislature in 1997 to recognize the service
and ultimate sacrifice made by law enforcement officers for the protection and safety of
the citizens of Louisiana.
This year, the Commission will award the Medal of Honor to the following officers:
1) Officer Russell A. George, Ball Police Department
2) Corporal John Ray Kendall, LA Dept. of Public Safety Police
3) Sergeant Paul B. Stuckey, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
The 2012 officers bring the number of Medal of Honor recipients to a total of 72 since the program’s inception.
