BILOXI, Miss. (WJTV) – On Wednesday, the Biloxi Police Department dedicated an “Honor Chair” in the lobby of the Lopez-Quave Public Safety Center in memory of fallen Biloxi Police Officer Robert “Bob” McKeithen.

The honor chair was provided by Saving A Hero’s Place, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a memorial to police departments who have suffered through the line of duty loss of a fellow officer.

The veteran officer was shot and killed in May 2019 as he stood outside his cruiser in front of Biloxi police headquarters.

“The Biloxi Police Department wishes to thank all the members of the community we so proudly serve, who were involved in making this thoughtful memorial a lasting part of the Lopez-Quave Public Safety Center,” said Biloxi Police Chief John Miller.
