Police will mark Sept. 11

Park City police officers plan to wear black bands over their badges on Sept. 11 to honor the seventh anniversary of the attacks on the East Coast.

Phil Kirk, a Police Department captain, said officers will wear the bands on each of the three shifts on Sept. 11.

Meanwhile, Police Department dispatchers will sound an alert to the officers at the time the plane crashes occurred, and flags will fly at half-staff at municipal buildings.

A public ceremony is not planned.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office does not plan to mark the anniversary, Sheriff Dave Edmunds said. He said, in hindsight, he would have preferred to have planned a memorial.

Information from the Park City Fire District was not immediately available.

Edmunds said he is scheduled to be in the Salt Lake Valley on Sept. 11 for a statewide police meeting.

"I’m a little embarrassed by it. I wish I would have planned something," Edmunds said.

He said he keeps two books at his desk — a picture book about Sept. 11 and a compilation of Medal of Honor winners.

"I don’t want people to forget," he said, explaining why he keeps the Sept. 11 book on his desk.

Information about how the Park City Fire District planned to remember the anniversary was not immediately available.
