LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Ken Rochell, of Ann Arbor, to the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Monument Fund Commission.

The seven-member commission oversees the financing, design and construction of Michigan's future Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

“Our first responders work hard to keep our residents safe every day, I am confident Ken will work to support the memory of those lost too soon by bringing thoughtful insight to the commission,” Snyder said.

Rochell is a chaplain and recruiter with the Michigan State Police, where he has worked for more than 25 years, 14 of which have been spent serving as sergeant. He earned an associate degree from Kalamazoo Valley Community College, a bachelor’s degree from Ashley University, and an honorary doctorate of divinity from Destiny Christian University. He represents police chaplains and replaces Fred Lab.

Rochell will serve the remainder of a four-year term expiring June 30, 2016. His appointment is not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
