Pikes Peak region Peace Officers' Memorial Day service on Friday

Cops and coffee: officers reach out during National Police Week

Campus public safety officers know that they may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Officers from several area agencies presented the colors and participated in the ceremony honoring law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty. "You are very unique and special people". Each year, names of fallen officers are added to the law enforcement memorial in Washington. "Last summer, I got the opportunity to fly out to Dallas, Texas, for five of those funerals when five Dallas police officers were murdered in the streets". The shots broke glass at the building, but did not result in any injuries.

Law enforcement statewide also took part in the memorial.

Schwertfeger thanked Bailey for his leadership during the troubled time.

Ron Pinkston, the combative former head of the Dallas Police Association, told the Observer after the ceremony that Wednesday, for him, wasn't about politics. He thanked all descendants who attended the ceremony.

"This event is to basically praise the officers, the men and women of the department of not only the Brownsville department but law enforcement across the country", Commander David Dale said.

At the request of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Public Law 103-322 designates Peace Officers Memorial Day as one of only two days each year during which government agencies, businesses, and residents are to fly their USA flags at half-staff.

Harvey Snook III, Prince William County Officer Ashley Guindon and Virginia State Police Trooper Chad Dermyer - died since the beginning of 2016.

"They do this assuming that they will be able to go home to their families at the end of their shift".

Woodstock Mayor Donnie Henriques read the proclamation by President John F. Kennedy and said everyone has gathered "here tonight to honor those men and women on the thin blue line that have fallen". But we knew they were grateful because they came out again; they were walking and they were taking their kids to the park.

The Dallas Police Honor Guard marches at the memorial.

ROPE, he said, "allow (s) residents to see a police officer living in their neighborhood", while becoming a pipeline to leadership in the department.

When I watched the 2016 viral video from a heated Kelly File discussion panel in which rap artist and "peace" activist Jessica Disu called for the abolition of police forces in America as a solution to violence in troubled communities, I rolled my eyes so hard I got a migraine.
