Remembering the Original "Midnight Piper"
Midnight Piper
Each year during National Police Week, a lone bagpiper appears at midnight at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, to play a tribute to the fallen heroes engraved on the Memorial's walls. Sadly, the original “Midnight Piper,” Jimmy O'Connell, passed away this month after a battle with brain cancer. Reflecting on his death, NLEOMF Chairman Craig Floyd wrote, “Many of us gather at the Memorial late at night, and out of the quiet darkness steps the Midnight Piper to pay a solemn tribute to the 18,661 fallen heroes whose names grace the Memorial walls. Jimmy was the original Midnight Piper, and we are so grateful to him for this wonderful tradition that will now live on in his memory.”

National Law Enforcement Museum Update

The Museum recently acquired the badge of Inspector William Payne, one of Virginia’s most successful Prohibition agents. Inspector Payne was gunned down by a bootlegging suspect on February 21, 1919. At the time, he held the Virginia Department of Prohibition Enforcement’s record for arrests. The badge is the only original Virginia Prohibition Inspector badge known to exist. It came to the Museum courtesy of Inspector Payne’s family and Chris Cosgriff of the Officer Down Memorial Page. Read more.
