Description
The memorial recalls the dangers inherent in public safety and honors the commitment and valor of three Scarsdale, New York, police officers. These men died in the line of duty – John J. Harrison, sergeant, shot and killed trying to capture two thieves, in 1923; Alonzo Doty, patrolman, hit and killed by a car on the Albany Post Road, 1923; and, Charles Ackerly, patrolman, murdered while stopping a vehicle for suspected violations, 1956. • The names of the men lost as well as dedicatory language are inscribed, and highlighted, over the face of an oblong-shaped piece of polished marble. Well preserved, the monument rests on a rock base. • The memorial is situated in a garden-like area near the entrance to the town’s public safety office building. It stands at the Albany Post Road, Route 22, where it intersects Fenimore Road, Scarsdale. The public safety facility began a substantial upgrade in June, 2009, 100 years after its creation. (The town itself was founded in 1701.) During this construction, the memorial -- not altered itself -- was held in temporary storage. Upon the construction’s completion, it was repositioned, a little. • The monument was erected with the efforts of the Scarsdale Police Benevolent Association as well as support from the Scarsdale community. The piece was dedicated May 15, 1995.
