Remembering a Fallen Officer

Acting Chief Robert D. MacLean presents Officer Craig Lane's wife Bridget and children Zachary, Riley and Sydney with an American flag following his memorial service on May 31, 2014

On May 31, 2014 United States Park Police paid their final respects to Master Patrol Officer (MPO) Craig Lane who passed away on Monday, May 5, 2014, after battling brain cancer. MPO Lane proudly served with the Marine Corps and worked diligently as a United States Park Police officer for 17 years. The memory and legacy he left behind will act as a great comfort to those touched by his dedication and kindness.

MPO Lane will be remembered for his acts of bravery, passion for his job, great cases he made during his law enforcement career, how much he loved the Marine Corps and his country, hunting with his brother, and spending quality time with his family.

Craig's honorable and faithful service to this country and to the Nation's Capital (as a member of the U.S. Park Police) is a proud legacy, for which he will be remembered.
