Member of the Brentwood Police Department are raising money to help fund a trip Washington, D.C. in May, when fallen officer Stephen Arkell will be honored.
Arkell’s name will be added to the Wall of the Fallen at the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial.
The part-time officer was killed in May of last year, responding to a domestic disturbance call.
Thousands of police officers, first responders, friends and family packed the athletic stadium at Exeter High School Wednesday to pay tribute to fallen Brentwood officer Steve Arkell.
It was a week and a half ago when Arkell was killed in the line of duty responding to a domestic disturbance call.
At the memorial service, speakers paid tribute to a man they said put love of family and service to his community above all else.
Nearly 2,000 police officers from around the state and their region paid their respects to fallen Brentwood Officer Steve Arkell and his family Tuesday night.
Steve Arkell worked Mondays as a part-time officer for the Brentwood Police Department.
And it was Monday of last week when, responding to a routine domestic disturbance call, he was shot and killed in the line of duty.
But Arkell was much more than an officer to the small town of about 4,000 people.
Those who knew him recall a man with a genuine passion for family and community.
If you’re looking for someone to talk to you about Arkell, there are few people more qualified than Exeter High School Athletic Director Bill Ball.
A week after Brentwood Officer Steve Arkell was shot and killed, investigators say suspected gunman Michael Nolan intentionally set the fire that led an explosion, destroying the house.
Nolan was killed and officials fear they’ll never know why he opened fire.
Officer Arkell was killed responding to a domestic dispute between Nolan and his father, 86-year-old Walter Nolan.
Officials were able to get Walter Nolan away from the house before the explosion, but Sgt. Joseph Ebert with the state police says he’s been unable to provide any insight about what took place.
Memorial services have been scheduled for Stephen Arkell, the Brentwood police officer killed responding to a domestic dispute Monday.
