In observance of National Police Week, the Bastrop Police Department will hold a wreath laying ceremony in honor of officers who lost their lives whilst protecting others. The ceremony will be held on National Peace Officers Memorial Day May 15 at 2 p.m. and will take place at the Fallen Police Officer's Memorial in the front Plaza of Bastrop City Hall.

The highlight of the evening will be an appearance by Lieutenant Mavis Johnson from Baton Rouge. She is known for her own rendition of Amazing Grace written especially to honor Law enforcement. The entire song can be heard on youtube by searching “Amazing Grace Mavis Johnson.” The ceremony will be open to the public.
