Reaching the Top of Elbert for Fallen Heroes!
Every year on the last Saturday in June, Cops on Top teams from across the country set out to summit their state’s highest point in honor of the law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty. And so it was this June 29 that a team of 23 volunteers summited Mt. Elbert – Colorado’s highest point – to honor our fallen heroes in law enforcement.
Cops on Top has a mission of never forgetting the life, memory and sacrifice of our nation’s law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty. Whether the team is attempting to climb the tallest mountain or hike the highest hill, each team member carries with them the memory of the tremendous sacrifice the officers made to protect and serve that State. Certainly something to remember as we begin the week-long festivities of celebrating freedom. Thank you to all law enforcement, but especially the Leadville/Lake County officers for keeping the community safe.
