Ceremony to be held for Peace Officers

Obama had flags flown at half-mast for police, the paper reported, but didn't shine the blue light on the White House.

The 36th Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service happened Monday on the West Front of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.

On Monday, the nation will pause to remember law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, including two Hoosier heroes.

From baseball games to honoring the fallen, the officers are focusing this week on those who serve - and those who gave their lives serving. The president previously used the color to mark World Autism Awareness Day.

Only six police officers have lost their lives protecting the Williamson County community, but the risk is always there. "We never know what the next shift is going to bring", Warner said.

After leaving Fox News a year ago amid a sexual harassment scandal, he also advised Donald Trump's presidential campaign. Ailes denied the allegations, saying the reason her contract was not renewed was due to "disappointingly low ratings".

Trump promised to fund, train, and equip law enforcement agencies around the country as part of his promise to keep America safe.

Our liberties depend on the rule of law, and that means supporting the incredible men and women of law enforcement. "Please, take time this week to thank your local officers and their families for their sacrifices and commitment to your community".

The bravery shown by police officers such as Keith Palmer in the Westminster terror attack will be remembered at a new police memorial.

"It's important that we recognize the fallen officers in this state, and we can't forget the families", Rose said. Trump also signed a proclamation honoring police while surrounded by families of law enforcement in the Oval Office.

All of their names will be added to the National Peace Officer Memorial Wall.
