"This year, 145 officers were killed throughout the United States", he said.

The ceremony is part of national police week.

"(Basler) and another officer were responding to a prowler call on West Levee Street and they encountered the suspect, which in turn opened fire on our captain", Dale said.

"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".

The officers will continue to be honored Saturday during the 10th Annual Valor Run at 9 a.m.at Memorial Park, followed by the Memorial Ball at 6 p.m.at the Marriott Hotel, 5580 Tech Center Drive.

Monday was Peace Officers Memorial Day and this week is National Police Week.

"And we publicly salute the service of law enforcement officers from our community and from communities from across the nation", Tyer says.

The UK Police Memorial will see a physical memorial established, set in a handsome landscaped garden, inscribed with the names of over 1,400 police officers and staff who have died from injuries they sustained while carrying out their lawful duties. Each year, there are approximately 60,000 assaults on law enforcement officers, resulting in almost 16,000 injuries.

"While we're here to honor those fallen officers, it's also a good time with camaraderie", Stroud said.

Thompson - along with four Dallas Police Department officers - was killed in the July 7, 2016, ambush shootings. This program will improve officer safety on the job and accelerate the process of benefits through the Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program, which provides vital resources to the families of fallen officers. This is Toby Aguillard first observed as Lafayette Police Chief.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy established May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the entire week National Police Week.

"Police officers and staff, are ordinary people doing an extraordinary role to protect their communities. May we never forget them and always remember their dedication to Cherokee County, their friendship and love".

"There are twinges of sadness, as you see the family go up".
