GREEN RIVER — The City of Green River is currently celebrating national Police Week, which runs May 9-15. The Green River City Council approved a proclamation at its meeting last week.

The proclamation calls for all citizens to observe this Saturday as Peace Officers Memorial Day to honor those Peace Officers who, through their courageous deeds, have lost their lives or have become disabled in the performance of duty.

Green River Chief of Police Tom Jarvie thanked his officers for their dedication to the citizens of Green River and said, “they all really care about our community.”
