Corporal Christopher M. Shea was tragically killed in the line of duty when his cruiser was struck head on by a vehicle operated by a drunken driver on July 18th 2004.
The annual Corporal Christopher M. Shea Memorial 5k is a yearly event that was started in 2005 to raise money for high school graduates entering the fields of Law, Law Enforcement, and/or other Civil Service.
