'It's High Sacrifice Work:' Richmond Police Department Honors Fallen Officers

'It's High Sacrifice Work:' Richmond Police Department Honors Fallen Officers

The appeal by the UK Police Memorial Trust is aiming to raise the final £1.5m for a £4m project which will pay tribute to more than 1,400 men and women who have been killed on duty.

Going forward the mayor says the city must have the flexibility to fund the pension as needed in the years ahead.

President Donald Trump recognizes the importance of paying tribute to fallen officers, and the need to help protect those in the line of duty as their jobs become increasingly more unsafe. The Santa Maria Police Department's honor guard performed a 21-gun salute, and the Sheriff Office's mounted unit presented a riderless horse symbolizing the fallen officers. They talked about the importance of the day and that it's not we versus law enforcement but we versus the forces of evil. These 394 officers include 143 officers who were killed during 2016, plus 251 officers who died in previous years but whose stories of sacrifice had been lost to history until now.

One of the family members of fallen Hattiesburg police officer Jessie James Everett, Debbie Everett, was in attendance for the ceremony.

The service has been going on for almost two decades and honors all law enforcement, whether they are alive and working or they died while serving the community.

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

Law enforcement, judges, prosecutors, community leaders and their families filled the pews at St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Port St. Lucie.

"Just last month we saw officers and thousands of members of the public line the route of the cortege for the funeral of PC Keith Palmer, who was murdered in the terrorist attack on Westminster".

"It's a very risky job, they realize that, the families realize that and this is just a wonderful way to show their appreciation to the families and to the officers themselves", Rigel said.

I am grateful that National Police Week gives us a moment to pause to honor these courageous public servants and to reflect on their commitment and valor.

"Their real reward is just being recognized, even if it's just a minor thing, someone saying something to you in passing on the street", said Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn. Zamarripa was among those who died. "We honor their sacrifice", Cohen said.
