National Police Week: Fallen officers in Tennessee Valley honored downtown

The site says tens of thousands of law enforcement officers travel to Washington, D.C. each year to participate in planned Police Week events which honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Bachmann was killed by a gunman in August 2012 in College Station. Tomorrow, let us work even harder to prevent future tragedies and find ways to show our gratitude for those who rush to our aid when we are faced with life-threatening danger.

Faison said the families of fallen officers are just as courageous as the officers themselves. "These officers here, they are going to go out later and they're going to continue to serve". "At the same time today, we honor all of the law enforcement officers".

"Most return home every night to their loved ones", he said.

While the event focused on local officers who have died in Manatee County dating back as far as 120 years, Bevan said that the past year was especially deadly for law enforcement nationwide.

In tribute to the American law enforcement officers at the request of the national Law enforcement officers Memorial fund, public wall 103 - 322 designates May 15 national peace officers Memorial day, which is one of only two days each year during which government agencies, businesses, and residents are to fly their United States flags at half-staff.

Following Wednesday's ceremony, the department held a barbecue fundraiser to support its benevolent fund.

"It's overwhelming and its attractive service that they provided for the officers", said one in attendance. Brown's bill prioritizes federal grant applications for DOJ's Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) funding for those departments and agencies that seek to use COPS funding to hire veterans. "When they die, the whole community suffers". "We honor their sacrifice", Cohen said.

Santa Maria Police Chief Ralph Martin read each name aloud as a white lily was placed by each photograph.

Meanwhile, the sheriff said the memorial service is a reminder of the officers' oath.

He said one woman, participating in the walk to honor her husband's memory, grew tired from the physical activity.

Bennett's great-niece, Wylene Graham, said she appreciated the efforts being made.

He said he asked her if she could make it. This week is to remind us of the law enforcement professionals who put their lives on the line each and every day to serve their communities.

The Elgin Police Department is the "older brother of the police family", said Sgt. Dino Heckermann of the Streamwood Police Department.

The City of Erie, and Erie County Fraternal Order of Police organized it.

He said the department has the support of city officials, the business community and its residents.
