National Police Week events today in Middle Tennessee

Fallen officers remembered at national candlelight vigil

According to Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS), about 140 to 160 officers are killed in the line of duty each year. City police officers and city officials, which included both Auburn Mayor Bill Ham and Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller, were in attendance for the 2018 Law Enforcement Memorial Service, held during National Police Week at the Auburn Municipal Courtroom.

"In his life and service, Deputy Allery exemplified courage and a willingness to do whatever had to be done regardless of circumstance", Sen.

As law enforcement at all levels collaborates to curtail violent crime, the cooperation of the public is a key component of community resilience and neighborhood safety. Last year's number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as a result of "felonious acts" - 46 - also was a decrease from 2016, when 66 officers were killed in line-of-duty incidents, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Delong was driving a Chevrolet pickup, which was reportedly stolen from Devils Lake.

The New Providence Police officers raised nearly $6,000 in order to ride and spent an additional $2,000 of their own funds to purchase bicycles, uniforms and additional items needed for the three day ride. In the video, Ginzo performed the heartfelt song as images appeared of officers who recently died in the line of duty.

On Friday, May 11, a memorial service I attended was held at our State Capitol in Madison at the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Memorial, located on the north side of the capitol square. Those law enforcement officers traveled hundreds of miles from across the country.

In honor of National Police Officers' Memorial Week, Clarinda Police's annual memorial ceremony takes place Wednesday afternoon at 2 at the Clarinda Cemetery's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Relatives of area slain officers will be in attendance along with law enforcement officers representing surrounding agencies. They made the 300 mile trek and arrived in time for National Police Week to begin. This allows governors to order the American flag to fly at half-staff in recognition of first responders who are killed in the line of duty.
