Orlando police escort fallen officer Kevin Valencia’s son to first day of school

ORLANDO, Fla. — It was an emotional first day of school for some members of the Orlando Police Department.

Once again this year, officers escorted the son of a fallen officer Kevin Valencia to his first day of school.


Valencia’s son walked to his first day of fifth grade this morning with a uniformed entourage.

Valencia was shot while responding to a hostage situation involving four children back in 2018. He died three years later.
