WASHINGTON, D.C. (WENY) – Fallen New York State Trooper and Southern Tier Native Nicholas Clark is among the over 300 law enforcement officers whose names will be added to the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in May.

On Monday, May 13, U.S. Attorney General William Barr will deliver special remarks and read the names of the fallen officers. Including Trooper Clark, 371 names will be added to the memorial. The list includes 158 who fell in the line of duty in 2018, and 213 officers who died in the past but whose sacrifice had not been previously documented.

With these new additions, there are a total of 21,910 officers' names engraved on the memorial.

On July 2, 2018, 29-year-old Nicholas Clark was shot and killed in the line of duty after responding to a reported domestic dispute.

Trooper Clark was a lifelong Steuben County resident who graduated from Canisteo-Greenwood High School. He graduated from Alfred University in 2011 and became a state trooper in 2015.

Locally, Trooper Clark's legacy is being honored in many ways, from a memorial scholarship at Alfred University to the Patriots Park in Canisteo being renamed in honor of his sacrifice.
