March 3, 1929

Today the Irvington Police Department held a memorial service to honor and remember Police Officer George E. Duggan. Officer Duggan was killed in the line of duty, 92 years ago today, March 3, 1929, at 4:15 PM. Officer Duggan who was on motorcycle patrol, was stopped in the area of South Broadway and Harriman Rd. when a male approached him and without warning shot him in the head. We will never forget the sacrifice Officer Duggan gave that day.

Patrolman Duggan was survived by his wife and 6-year-old daughter Clara and 5-year old son Edward.
