CHARLEROI, Pa. (AP) - An investigator with the Law Enforcement Officers memorial in Pittsburgh is trying to find relatives of a western Pennsylvania police officer who died of a heart attack while on duty in 1943.

Rocky Geppert tells the (Monessen) Valley Independent (https://bit.ly/1JdJsyi ) that he’s trying to find Charleroi officer George Arnold’s relatives so Geppert can submit an application by Dec. 31 to have Arnold’s name added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The year-end deadline is to get Arnold’s name considered for inclusion on the memorial in the year 2017.

Arnold was divorced with no children when he died while making an arrest during a domestic dispute on March 29, 1943. Arnold was 43 when he died.

The national memorial requires the name and address of a relative who can verify the officer’s information.
