The band would like to extend condolences to the family, friends and co-workers of Lenoir County Sheriff’s Department Detective Allen Pearson who’s life was taken the line of duty on Tuesday, April 7, 2009. Detective Pearson was shot and killed as he and other members of the agency’s Special Response Unit attempted to apprehend a suspect who had murdered a woman the previous day in a rural area of Lenoir County. Funeral services were held on Saturday, April 11, 2009 and members of the Greenville North Carolina Public Safety Pipes and Drums provided a fitting tribute in honor of the life and service of Detective Pearson.
