Ceremony to Honor Law Enforcement Set for Thursday

It was a moving demonstration put on by the Police Unity Tour, whose main goal is to raise awareness of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

Hundreds of law enforcement officials bicycled hundreds of miles to Washington, DC to usher in the National Police Week events.

"Law enforcement officers run toward conflict and gunfire to protect innocent lives in an environment where they are highly scrutinized on social media and in cell phone video clips", Kirsch said in a press release.

The recent death of a Terre Haute police officer serves as a reminder of the danger that men and women in the police force face each day on the job, those attending Friday's 16th Police Officer Memorial Ceremony in Fort Wayne were told. It includes a list of names engraved along a pair of 304-foot-long walls, which grows longer each spring when the names of fallen officers are added.

"It's a somber honor and a real tribute for the commemoration of the service of Brian Shaw, who gave his life protecting our city", Guzzo said. So he and his wife Lora created this service.

The names of 360 law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty-including 129 who died in 2017-were formally dedicated on Sunday evening, during the 30th Annual Candlelight Vigil, held on the National Mall and produced by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. So that people across the country can experience this unique and powerful ceremony, the vigil will be webcast live over the Internet beginning at 8 pm (EDT) on May 13.
