Wednesday, June 16, 2010

A White Plains police officer who died in the line of duty is being remembered Wednesday.

Hundreds of police officers and firefighters from all across the county gathered at the Clark Funeral home in Yorktown Heights Tuesday to pay their respects to Michael Perry. They returned to St. Patrick's Church Wednesday to say their final farewells.

The 43-year old suffered a fatal heart attack after chasing and arresting a career criminal outside the Galleria Mall in White Plains Saturday.

He was posthumously promoted to detective.
