BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – City of Palm Bay Mayor Rob Medina presented the Palm Bay Police Department with a proclamation honoring all law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, paying special tribute to Sgt. Frank Tobar.
Corporal Frank Tobar passed in 2019 due to complications related to COVID-19.
“Corporal Tobar proudly and faithfully served this community for nearly 17 years,” said Palm Bay officials.
“Corporal Tobar was widely known for teaching new recruits at the local police academy.”
National Police Week offers honor, remembrance, and peer support while allowing law enforcement, survivors, and citizens to gather and pay homage to those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation that designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.
Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events that honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
