Dallas Honors Fallen Officers Against Backdrop Of July Attack

Cops and coffee: officers reach out during National Police Week

Cops and coffee: officers reach out during National Police Week

Each year in mid-May, tens of thousands of law-enforcement officers from around the world assemble in Washington, D.C., to pay special recognition to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The Waco Police Department hosted a Peace Officer Memorial ceremony Thursday morning at Indian Spring Park. The service is taking part at 11025 Voyager Parkway in Colorado Springs.

And one by one, family members of the Missoula officers who died in the line of duty walked to the wall and deposited a single rose at its base.

Seventh-grader Sam Hendrix will give the speech this year.

In 2016-in our county alone-214 defendants were sentenced to state prison for a total of 747 years for committing crimes against peace officers.

The names of Maine's law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty will once again ring out in Augusta.

Beware, WannaCry cyber attack may just be the beginning
A 22-year old security researcher in the United Kingdom discovered a "kill-switch" to initially stop the spread of the attack. The computing giant said software vulnerabilities hoarded by governments had caused "widespread damage", the BBC reported .

Since the first death of an officer recorded in 1791, more than 20,000 law enforcement officers in the USA have died in the line of duty. You've got to have order to have democracy.

That's what law enforcement memorial day is all about. The commemoration of National Police Week began in 1962 under a proclamation signed by President John F. Kennedy.

The events in London last month, including the death of PC Keith Palmer, have put greater emphasis on the need to create a space where people can honour those who have been killed on duty, and where their family, friends and colleagues can carry out acts of remembrance. "During National Police Week, IACLEA honors the 43 campus public safety officers who made the ultimate sacrifice".

"Thank you very much for what you do every day", Boke said. California is second only to Texas, which suffered the loss of 19 police officers previous year. The money committed so far by the Government, as well as Chief Constables, Police and Crime Commissioners, staff associations and companies and business is testament to the significance of this project, and I have no doubt that people across the United Kingdom will be eager to raise the rest of the funds needed.

Following Wednesday's ceremony, the department held a barbecue fundraiser to support its benevolent fund. They are Deputy Sheriff Paul Allen Clark, St. Francois County Sheriff's Office, and Police Officer Blake Curtis Snyder of the St. Louis County Police Department.
