The Pierce County Sheriff's Department held a ceremony on Thursday, May 3, to add Deputy Shandon Wright's picture to a memorial for fallen deputies.

A ribbon bearing Wright's name was also added to the Sheriff's Department flag. The ceremony was attended by the fallen deputy's family and friends, and it featured remarks by Sheriff Paul Pastor, County Council Chair Joyce McDonald and County Executive Pat McCarthy.
