I have been Chief for 6 years now for the City of Waldo Florida. I have always assumed Marshal Hall had been added. Thanks to someone with the Gainesville Florida PD. I received the info. After checking, it was to my surprise that he had never been added. I am honored to have signed the required paperwork to have him added. I will be at the memorial when his name is called for the 1st time.
This tragedy shows how for the last 100 yrs, the Officer’s of the Waldo Police Dept. have been available to the Citizens of Alachua County Florida, the Sheriff’s Office, and the citizens of the City of Waldo.
R.I.P. Marshal Hall.
