National Police Week May 19, 2016
Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND
"Officer Moszer was struck down that evening, and his name will forever be etched in stone on the North Dakota’s Peace Officer’s Memorial that sits on the grounds of the State capitol in Bismarck. Through rain, sleet, and snow—extreme heat and cold—he will now stand alongside those other North Dakota officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. They provide an unwavering example that, regardless of what conditions they face, our peace officers will stand steadfast regardless of what challenges they may face."
