Blue Hymn of the Fallen Officer - Song
The "Blue Hymn of the Fallen" song was originally written by Officer Justin Sparks and used at the funeral for a Line of Duty death of his Brother-in-Law Officer Blake Snyder. Officer Snyder was fatally shot while answering a disturbance call in the early morning hours of October 6, 2016. Officer Mike Maxwell and local musicians and audio techs took the poem/hymn and made it into the song you hear today. The song was first played and performed at the 2017 Annual St. Louis County Police Memorial Breakfast and now made available to you on the Welfare Association's site. All proceeds will go to the St. Louis County Police Welfare Association to assist Officers and Civilian staff financially during their time of need.
Helping those that protect others is what the Association is here for. To get more information on the Welfare Association please visit our Facebook Site or go to the St. Louis County Police webpage and click on the Welfare Association tab.
Thanks for your support of the men & women of the St. Louis County Police Department and our mission to Serve the Public.
