FLORENCE, AZ – Pinal County District 2 Supervisor Cheryl Chase and Officer Jennifer Eastman of Phoenix Police Department are co-chairing the 40th Annual statewide Peace Officers’ Memorial Service on Monday, May 6 at 7:30 PM. Super visor Chase is also honored to again be on the planning team for the Pinal County Peace Officers’ Memorial Service on Thursday, May 9 beginning at 6:30 PM.
“I encourage the community to come to one or both of these events.
