The community of Brentwood is marking the anniversary of the death of police officer Steve Arkell.

The 48-year-old, part-time officer was killed one year ago Tuesday responding to a domestic violence call.

He worked for the department for 15 years, and served as the town’s animal control officer.

Arkell was also the assistant coach for the Exeter High School lacrosse team, coaching both of his daughters on the team.

The town held the first Officer Stephen Arkell Community 5K last month. Nearly 2,000 runners participated, raising money for a scholarship in his name.

Police Chief Wayne Robison will join Arkell’s family and members of the department in Washington, D.C. this week to see Arkell’s name added to the Wall of the Fallen at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
