Last week, two SPD officers joined the community at the Sarasota National Cemetery as 12 Veterans were laid to rest after their remains were unclaimed.

Following that event, the agency posted images of that with the caption, "‪We're humbled to be able to give one final goodbye to people who gave so much for our country."
