Police Week 2018 begins with vigil for fallen officers

On May 15th each year, the Fraternal Order of Police and the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary host a ceremony on the west steps of the U.S. Capitol to honor fallen law enforcement officers and their families.

The number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty decreased to 128 nationwide in 2017 from prior years, according to Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle.

I am proud and honored to be able to live alongside these men and women, our friends.

Each year, more than 30,000 law enforcement officers and their families travel to Washington D.C.to observe National Police Week.

Allery was fatally shot by 28-year-old Melvin Gene Delong, of Belcourt, after a pursuit on January 18, 2017. We have officers in many different ways putting their lives on the line. The memorial service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement.

Chambers Sheriff Brian Hawthorne and Chambers County Commissioners Court paid tribute to fallen officers last week during the "Moment at the Memorial" ceremony for officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. "Each one of those lives is valuable and I think it's appropriate that we're honoring them at this time".

That group was formed in June 2011 by former local resident Melanie Jones and others who were inspired to do so after completing the city's annual Citizens Police Academy program.

Additionally, in 2017 there were 46 law enforcement officers killed in line-of-duty incidents as a result of felonious acts - this is a 30 percent decrease from 2016, when 66 law enforcement officer were killed in line-of-duty incidents as a result of felonious acts.

As United States Attorney for the District of Idaho, I am honored to work closely with federal, state and local law enforcement officers.

And on Tuesday, the Syracuse Police Department remembered the officers in Syracuse - and beyond - who died protecting their communities.

Providing a means for individuals, businesses, and communities to express their appreciation for law enforcement officers. A candlelight vigil will be held and include the placing of a wreath on the Houston Police Officers Memorial, a roll call of deceased officers, a 21-gun salute, the playing of TAPS, and a fly-over by HPD helicopters.

On Sunday night fallen officers from all 50 states were recognized at our nation's capital.
