Green Bay Police honor fallen officers in ceremony, moment of silence

Officers and community members gathered to remember five Oklahoma law enforcement members who made the ultimate sacrifice. The DPS Peace Officer Memorial Service is always held in conjunction with National Police Week.

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.

The first National Police Memorial Day was proclaimed by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, and the week in which it falls would then be designated National Police Week.

Bagpipes wailed over the sound of steady snare drums Monday morning in the plaza of Boca's police department for Peace Officer's Memorial Day.

"The attacks on our police are a stain on the very fabric of our society", he said, calling law enforcement the "thin blue line between civilization and chaos".

Trump also signed a proclamation honoring police while surrounded by families of law enforcement in the Oval Office.

McLane urges citizens to thank their local law enforcement for their service. Past year also saw the highest number of officers killed in ambush-style attacks in over two decades.

"In the Vice President's opening remarks, he reiterated the Trump administration's commitment to standing with the men and women of law enforcement "without apology".

"We like to recognize them", Skropits said.

"When an officer dies in a community it changes that community forever and I think we need to remember that", JPD Chief Mike Yaniero said. "Then later on, as it progressed, Congress passed a public law dedicating an entire week to Police Officers' Memorial Week".
