Fort Pierce Police Department's(FPPD) own, Sergeant Danny Parrish lost his life on January 18, 1991, in what was supposed to be a simple traffic stop. You can help us honor Sergeant Parrish and all our fallen first responders with a park named in his honor. Located at 920 South U.S. Highway 1, Sergeant Danny Parrish Fallen First Responders Park will honor all first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their community. It will be a sacred place for our residents, visitors, and family members of our fallen first responders to visit and reflect on how much we all owe to our heroes.

In addition, a bronze statue will be placed in front of the FPPD main station, depicting a uniformed officer saluting, giving honor to the United States flag and the Sergeant Danny Parrish Fallen First Responders Park. The statue, titled “Hero,” will represent all fallen first responders and will have pavers engraved with the names of memorial supporters and donors around the immediate area of the statue. Pavers are planned to be placed in the Memorial Park as well.

You can be a part of these momentous events honoring our heroes by purchasing brick paver(s) from the Fort Pierce Police Department Charitable Trust, a newly-formed, not-for-profit 501 (C) 3 organization, governed by a board made up of law enforcement and civilian members. Your purchase of a paver and/or any donations to the FPPD Charitable Trust will help complete the park and fund the statue. Your contribution will also help the FPPD fund equipment, programs, and community engagements that keep our officers safer and strengthen the relationship between the police department and our community.

Please show your love and support for all our first responders by making a tax-deductible purchase or donation. Our first responders are there when we need them; let’s show them we appreciate the sacrifices they and their families make daily for us.
