In Honor of Officer Seara Burton

Thank you for your service!

Seara Burton

On behalf of the hundreds of families serving Wayne County Government, we offer our deepest sympathy to the family of Richmond Police Officer Seara Burton.

The tragic loss of such a bright star in local law enforcement brings sorrow to each of us who serve the public. Officer Burton’s passing brings us together to grieve as one public service family, joined to honor her memory.

Wayne County Government will lower its flags and darken our Courthouse at night, in concert with the City of Richmond, during this period of mourning. We call upon our entire community to join us in recognizing Officer Burton’s ultimate sacrifice as she protected and served us all.

Ken Paust, President Wayne County Board of Commissioners
