NHUAC’s Dedication For Steve Cox Memorial Is This Sunday, May 15th


The North Highline Unincorporated Area Council (NHUAC) has scheduled a dedication ceremony for the Steve Cox Memorial at 3 p.m. this Sunday May 15th.

All are invited to the ceremony at Steve Cox Memorial Park, located at 1321 SW 102nd Street in White Center.

Deputy Cox was killed in the line of duty on December 2, 2006, and at the time of his death, he was the White Center Storefront deputy and served the community as the President of the NHUAC.

The NHUAC led the community effort to rename the park for Deputy Cox and the fundraising to install a memorial. Artist Jay Haavik was selected to design and build a stone memorial to Deputy Cox.

May 15th is also National Peace Officers Memorial Day. In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

    Officer Cox was a great man. He did wonders for the white center area and is more then well deserving of this day. But as you move around white center things are getting back to the way they were. KCSO has seem to turn a blind eye to all the hard work and dedication officerCox put in to clean up white center. We now have the gangs back, Pot houses are popping up and the streets aren’t safe anymore. I know officer Cox can never be replaced. But we need to keep his spirt alive in WC and keep up the fight to save the hood. I know this could never be but Officer Cox we need you back. God bless you.
