The service and wreath-laying ceremony is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Rose Tree Park on Route 252 in Media. The public is invited.

Wehe, a Delaware County Courthouse and Park Police officer, suffered a heart attack shortly after clearing the scene of a protest at the Delaware County Prison. He was also a part-time Marcus Hook police officer and U.S. Navy veteran.

The memorial monument was dedicated in March 2002. Wehe is the 41st officer from the county to be memorialized.
