A brief memorial service will be held Thursday in honor of two BSO deputies killed in the line of duty.

Deputy Patrick Behan died on November 13, 1990, after being shot as he wrote a report while parked in front of a Pembroke Park convenience store where a theft had occurred.

During the Thursday morning service, the honor guard will present the colors, a wreath will be hung on the memorial wall, a bugler will play taps, and Sheriff Ken Jenne and others will say a few words in remembrance of the fallen deputies.
