A private funeral service to honor the life of New Mexico State Police Officer Darian Jarrott will be on Friday, Feb. 12, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. The services will be held at the Lordsburg High School Football Field (Maverick Stadium) in Lordsburg, New Mexico. Immediately following the service, Officer Jarrott will be escorted to Shakespeare Cemetery in Lordsburg for a private burial.
To adhere to public health occupancy requirements, seating is limited to the family of Officer Jarrott and his New Mexico State Police family. Unfortunately, NO other law enforcement agencies outside of New Mexico State Police will be allowed to attend the funeral. The public may show their support by viewing the service via a live stream on the New Mexico State Police Facebook page or KOAT Facebook page. If any law enforcement agencies would like to send a video/photo tribute for Officer Jarrott’s family, please email them to Public.Relations@state.nm.us.
Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to adhere to the current public health order, media outlets are asked to bring no more than two representatives to Officer Jarrott’s funeral. New Mexico State Police Officers will be given seating preference over the media. If additional seats are available, they will be offered to the media on a first come first serve RSVP basis. Please RSVP with Lieutenant Mark Soriano at NMSP.PIO@state.nm.us.
