Upland Fallen Officer Memorial
www.upmp.org
Officer Dark served the City of Upland for over 12 years. He gave the ultimate sacrifice when he died in the line of duty on September 17, 1940. He left behind his wife, Walteen and two young children,
Harold (7) and Maxine (5). In partnership with the Upland Community Foundation, the members of the Upland Police Department would like to create a Memorial in honor of our fallen officer. The proposed Memorial will be built on the southeast portion of the Upland Police Department property. All costs associated with the construction of the monument will be from private funding and donations only.
The Memorial will consist of three walls, with three flag poles erected behind them. The wall in the center will have a plaque, in remembrance of Officer Dark. In the center, there will be a statue of an officer kneeling on a pedestal facing the plaque. The area will be surrounded with benches to provide a
seating area for those visiting the memorial.
 

Tax-deductible donations can be made in any amount. Go to How You Can Help and donate using Pay Pal.
