The son of a 35 year veteran of the NOPD had his dad’s badge pinned upon his chest after the death of his father. Mark Hall Sr. fell victim to the COVID virus just one day before the private pinning ceremony.
In true cop fashion, the ceremony proceeded with Mark Hall Jr.’s mother affixing the badge to her son’s chest. Officer Hall’s son was due to graduate from the NOPD police academy the following day.
The NOPD chief said, “Mark Hall Jr. will now continue the family legacy of service and protection to the citizens and visitors of New Orleans. His father will be remembered as a dedicated professional who loved his family and the law enforcement community.”
Best of luck and prayers for a safe and honorable career with the NOPD. Godspeed!
