City of Hollywood Police Memorial Dedication
The Hollywood Police Department will dedicate a new police memorial to the six courageous officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty since the City’s founding in 1926.  The ceremony will be held on Friday, May 23 at 10:00 a.m. in front of the Hollywood Police Department at 3250 Hollywood Boulevard.
The Hollywood Police Memorial features six Officer Podiums to individually honor each fallen officer.  Installed in each officer’s podium is a photo along with a plaque with silver-colored raised lettering, a silver-colored badge and a silver-colored patch. There is also a Main Podium adorned with an aluminum plaque that matches each officer’s plaque.
The six officers whose 
service and sacrifice are 
honored by the memorial include:
Officer Owen Coleman (09-1925 to 01-25-1926) was one of the first men hired when the newly formed City was establishing the police department.  Officer Coleman was killed in a shootout in Davie in January of 1926.  Most news accounts of his death were destroyed in the hurricane of 1926. In the early 1990s, an historian of South Florida Police Officers killed in the line of duty discovered records of his death.  Officer Henry T. Minard (9-6-1971 to 11-18-1972) was killed in the line of duty on November 18, 1972.  Officer Minard was answering a silent holdup alarm at a jewelry store and interrupted a robbery in progress.  He was fatally shot by the robber. 
Officer Byron W. Riley (10-11-1971 to 8-30-1973) and Phillip C. Yourman (10-11-1971 to 8-30-1973) began a pursuit of a strong-arm robbery suspect vehicle.  As they sped through a quiet residential neighborhood, the police vehicle struck a tree and they both were fatally injured. 
Officer Frankie Shivers (12-20-1981 to 9-6-1982) lost her life while responding as a back-up to a car accident. This bizarre incident began with a traffic stop by another officer, John Lunney.  While writing the citation, another car slammed into Lunney's police cruiser, hurling him onto the roof of the vehicle he had stopped. The vehicle causing the crash burst into and Officer Shivers attempted to rescue the woman in the burning vehicle. The female driver grabbed Officer Shivers, revolver and shot her several times. 
Officer Alex Del Rio (4-12-99 to 2-22-08) is the City of Hollywood’s most recent fallen officer.  Officer Del Rio was conducting traffic enforcement on Sheridan Street on the evening of February 22, 2008.  In an attempt to stop a speeding motorist, he was involved in a motor vehicle crash and lost his life.
