9/11 Memorial Tribute

Police Headquarters Plaza
900 Columbia Avenue
Franklin, Tennessee

Franklin, TN – Franklin Police Officers and Firefighters invite the community to join us for a brief Monday morning ceremony, to pay tribute to the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives during the September 11, 2001 attacks on America.

Chief Faulkner and Chief Garzarek say this is an important day for police officers and firefighters to come together, and join with the community to remember those lost during such senseless attacks – here at home. “Members of our community often search for somewhere to go and reflect on this day,” said Chief Faulkner. “We invite them to do it here, with the men and women who serve and protect Franklin, every day.” Monday’s memorial will be brief, lasting no more than 30 minutes.

We Will Never Forget
