C.M.P.D. Memorial Park
Our thoughts, prayers and heartfelt sympathy continue to be extended to the families, friends and fellow Officers of Officer Clark and Officer Shelton as we remember the service and ultimate sacrifice they gave to the City of Charlotte one year after their tragic loss.
May God's love and guidance provide you peace and comfort, now and always...
Welcome...we thank you for visiting CMPDMemorialPark.com
On April 1, 2007 the City of Charlotte lost two fine police Officers...Officer Sean Clark and Officer Jeff Shelton. As a city we stopped to mourn the loss of two men who gave their lives protecting ours. Now...we come together to honor all our Police Officers who have given their lives in the line of duty, and all those who put on the uniform and would lay down their lives for you and me, each and every daywithout thought or consideration for their own safety or lives. Please take a moment and think about such selflessness.
We will be meeting with Officials from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and the Mecklenburg County Parks Department to determine an appropriate location and time line for a park within Mecklenburg County to honor all of our CMPD Officers who have given their lives for our freedom.
We may need paper petitions in the future, however, at this time, we just ask that you show your support to the Officers families and all our police by by signing the on-line petition.
Please check back for updates, as we will update this sight when more information is available!
We would like to thank each and every person who has been so incredibly supportive of our efforts in naming The Eastway Specialty Park after our dedicated Officers Sean Clark and Jeff Shelton. Please know we are resolved to seeing this park as a Memorial to Charlotte's heroes and guardians.
It has been brought to our attention, by a family spokesperson, that this is not the desire of one party. It is our sincere belief this new name,
C.M.P.D. Memorial Park
Please continue your efforts by signing the on-line petition so we will honor not only Officers Shelton and Clark but ALL the honorable men and women who have and do serve our City. We will update the printable petition today so kind, selfless citizens can, once again, begin circulating those to be presented to the City Council.
On August 22, 2007, we were asked to redirect all our efforts to the parks being built in the Officer's hometowns. We appreciate and respect the parks being built in Locust and Iron Station and fully encourage people to become involved in those efforts.
It is our steadfast belief the City of Charlotte desires and deserves to have a place they can visit to forever remember the sacrifice that all our men and women make who serve and protect our City each and every day.
All the fine men and women, who both live and die to protect the City of Charlotte, deserve the efforts of everyone who has been so selflessly involved in helping us achieve this memorial. We thank you!
We should all be proud as this has shown the world that...
CHARLOTTE HAS HEART!
Thank you, again, to each and every one involved and may God Bless Us All!
