Local police departments to honor fallen officers for National Police Week

Fallen police officers to be commemorated at National Memorial Arboretum

Sadly, though, some officers pay the ultimate price while protecting and serving our communities.

"These are just a few of the many heroes we honor today", said Sterling, of the Lake Havasu City Police Department, during remarks at Wednesday morning's Peace Officers Memorial service outside the Bullhead City Police Department. "They provide protection for people they've never met".

In 2016, 143 officers were killed in the line of duty, including three campus public safety officers.

Trump directed the Department of Justice earlier this this year to develop a strategy to better prevent violence against law enforcement officers. The loss of a single officer is a tragedy; the loss of 500 officers is a national crisis - one that demands a national solution. Gun-related incidents have always been the leading cause of officer deaths.

He tossed a "45" hat midway through his remarks to a young boy he identified as Micah, whose father had died in the line of duty. Officer deaths peaked in 1930, when 307 were killed.

"That bravery was plain for everyone to see in the phenomenal response of the police to the shocking events in Westminster back in March, as a result of which PC Keith Palmer tragically lost his life".

Wednesday's ceremony started with a procession of police vehicles, including a special flyover by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office helicopter. Along with High Point officers were their family members, recruits in basic law enforcement training, community members and Greensboro police officers. The event was held in conjunction with the annual Police Officers Memorial Ceremony at the Elgin Police Department.

"These men and women had family and friends".

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

"None of them wanted the spotlight", said Lt. Dan Cohen, who served as master of ceremony.

Monday was Peace Officers Memorial Day and this week is National Police Week.

"We at Lancashire Police are proud to be lending our support to this national campaign, which will honour the dedication, courage and sacrifice which has been made by so many of our colleagues".

"Our law enforcement officials are the thin blue line between chaos and civility in our country", Mullin said.

Of the 143 killed previous year, 9 were from Georgia.

"We had a terrorist group come into our town and terrorize out community. But it really makes people reflect and honor and think about those who have gone on before us", said Chief Eric Buske, with the Bryan Police Department. So to all of those educators out there, you have my respect and my thanks.

"It's because of law enforcement here in Santa Maria, so thank you to all of you", Patino said as audience members applauded.

"This is a demanding career choice, there's a lot of sacrifice for not only those who are in law enforcement, but their families as well".

First Sgt. M.C. Davis of the Virginia State Police read the names of the area officers killed in the line of duty, and David Cameron tolled a bell after each name was read.
