Welcome to the home page of the Delaware County Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation, dedicated to honoring the memories of the brave men and women of Delaware County, Pennsylvania Law Enforcement who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. These brave men and women walked a line between the just and the unjust, a line that few could walk; they did so with honor and dedication. And when the moment came, they did not waver...they gave all so that we may live in peace and freedom. We will always remember their service and sacrifice, and they shall live in our hearts forever!
Patrolman Edward A. Wehe
Delaware County Courthouse and Park Police Department, Pennsylvania End of Watch: Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Patrolman Edward Wehe suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after clearing the scene of a protest at the Delaware County Prison. He had been dispatched to the prison to assist in removing the protesters, who had not obtained the proper permits to assemble. He was able to clear the scene after approximately four hours. He went to a local restaurant where he ran into his daughter and, while speaking with her, suddenly collapsed. His daughter immediately initiated CPR until medics arrived. He was taken to Riddle Memorial Hospital where he passed away.
On Sunday October 6th, 2013 the Foundation held our 4th annual Motorcycle “Ride To Remember.” This year’s ride was a Poker Run. It started at the Memorial in Rose Tree Park, went to three different locations in the county, and finished up at Tom & Jerry’s in Ridley Twp. We had a great turn out this year, over 170 participants! It was an Awesome time had by all. Thanks to all our members volunteers, Tom & Jerry’s, and Videon Dodge. Also, congrats to Fred Beatty, our first player winner!!!
