The local Moose, Elks, and Eagles clubs, along with smaller contributors funded this his statue, which was commissioned by the Massillon Fraternal Order of Police, in the late 1980s. Local citizens donated labor for its installation.

Albert Bamburger, Massillon’s first police officer to lose his life on the job, was struck by a train while chasing a man who had caused a fracas at the train depot.  His brother, Louis Bamburger, is one of the firefighters commemorated by a stature by Raymond Coia in front of the Massillon Fire Department’s central station on south Erie Street.  He was ironically the first firefighter to lose his life in the line of duty.  

Officer Quinn was assassinated while walking his beat near the corner of Tremont and Sixth Street Southwest.  Myron Henderson was shot as he staffed the desk in the former police station.  And Officer Taylor was shot near Massillon Rec Center after a high-speed chase down Route 21.
