Lower Township Police Chief, Officers Place Wreath at Douglass’ Grave

Lower Township police officers place a wreath at David C. Douglass' grave in Cold Spring Cemetery Dec. 4.

By Press Release

COLD SPRING — Lower Township police officers placed a wreath Dec. 4, at the gravesite of Officer David C. Douglass Sr.  At the age of 34, Douglass lost his life in the line of duty on Feb.18, 1994.  
According to a release, Chief William Mastriana placed the Christmas wreath in front of Douglass’ headstone at Cold Spring Cemetery in Lower Township.  
Philadelphia’s Fallen Heroes wreath program donated the wreath.  This program was started by the family of Philadelphia P/O John Pawlowski (End of Watch Feb. 13, 2009) during the 2014 holiday season.
They were inspired by the National Wreaths Across America program, and driven by the overwhelming amount of anti-police sentiment at the time.  
They simply wanted to remember the sacrifices of those men and women and acknowledge that they did not die in vain and would not be forgotten.  
This program began to acknowledge the sacrifice of all of Philadelphia’s fallen police officers and their loved ones.  It has grown to include fallen officers across the nation.
