The Florida Sheriffs Association is holding its annual memorial ceremony to honor those who have given their lives in the line of duty. May is dedicated to remembering those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Please join us to pay respects to these fallen heroes, their families, law enforcement colleagues and all the men and women who gave their lives in service to Florida’s citizens.
Established in 2002, the Florida Sheriffs Association incorporated the granite Memorial Wall to honor sheriff’s officers who had fallen in the line of duty. It is a tribute to remember the sheriffs and deputies who have dedicated their lives to serve and protect Floridians, while respecting those who have passed. On the wall is an engraved verse that embraces these fallen heroes and the sacrifices they have made: “Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friend.” John 15:13.
The names added to the Memorial Wall are:
- Orange County Sheriff’s Office Deputy First Class Norman Lewis | End of Watch: Monday, January 9, 2017| Cause of Death: Motorcycle crash

Sen. Bean was honored for supporting drug control legislation
Senator Aaron Bean (R-Fernandina Beach) has received the Florida Sheriffs Association’s 2017 Friend of the Sheriff Award. Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams presented this award to Senator Bean in appreciation for supporting drug control legislation to address Florida’s heroin and Fentanyl epidemic. During the last day of the 2017 legislative session, Senator Bean was one of the deciding votes in approving the motion to recede from a problematic amendment that would have caused HB 477, Controlled Substances, to fail.
“I am truly humbled and honored to receive the Florida Sheriffs Association’s 2017 Friend of the Sheriff Award,” said Senator Bean. “As a longtime advocate for law enforcement, I understand the importance of combating the heroin and Fentanyl epidemic that is plaguing the State of Florida. I look forward to working with the Florida Sheriffs Association to ensure that law enforcement has the tools they need to protect Florida and its citizens.”
Senator Bean represents Senate District 4, which includes parts of Nassau and Duval Counties. He can be contacted in Tallahassee at (850) 487-5004 or in his District Office at (904) 757-5039.
Tomorrow, January 31st, Governor Rick Scott will attend the Florida Sheriff’s Association Winter Conference in Jacksonville.
