Reflections for Constable William A. Russell, Jr.

Constable Russell,

The Madison Police Department was able to have your name placed on the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, DC in 2020. We were not able to attend due to the COVID-19 cancellation of the event but we watched online to pay our respects. Sorry it took so long to have you recognized but we now have a place where we can go to pay our respects. We have the watch now sir. Matthew 5:9
