Memorial in honor of fallen Officer Robert McKeithen
On May 5th, 2019, the Gulf Coast suffered a tragedy with the loss of Biloxi Police Officer Robert McKeithen.
As we mark the one year anniversary of his death, the Biloxi Police Department is honoring him in a special way.
What began last night, the Biloxi Police Department will continue to play a memorial clip throughout the day today.
Officer McKeithen’s patrol car will be parked in front of the Biloxi Police Department throughout the week.
At 10 p.m., Chief John Miller will give a short speech. That speech will lead up to 10:07 p.m., the time when Officer McKeithen was shot then a minute of silence will be observed over the Biloxi police radio while blue lights on Officer McKeithen’s patrol car will be activated and a prayer will be given afterwards.
In an effort to promote social distancing, this ceremony will be off limits to the public, but will be video recorded.
