For clarification, Officer Bowers was recognized at both State (CA) and National Police Memorials. He was also recognized by the City of Maywood and a brass plaque was placed at a tree at Maywood Park. Before Maywood PD disbanded, the last Police Chief honored Officers Bowers, Hoglund and Kelley by having 3 stars embroidered on uniform shoulder patches. May God bless these 3 men for their ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty.
