Gov. Brown orders flags to half-staff for Peace Officers Memorial Day

Fayette chapter of Fraternal Order of Police to host memorial Tuesday

If it sounds hard to go through a day not knowing when a seemingly routine incident will suddenly turn risky, then consider what it must be like for the families and loved ones of police officers, who never know if their parent, sibling, spouse, child, will be called into a deadly situation.

This year's memorial is held in memory of the 16 Texas law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty in the past year.

He told the crowd about a speech he gave at a Montgomery Police Department graduation a year ago.

4,000 men and women are in law enforcement in King County, serving 39 cities, three Tribal Governments, the University of Washington, and almost 250,000 residents living in unincorporated communities.

Drew County Sheriff's Deputy Timothy Braden gave his life while serving and protecting his community.

In addition to expressing our appreciation for our dedicated law enforcement professionals, we must equip them to carry out the tremendous responsibility of keeping our communities safe.

"My dad loved being a police officer", she says. Since Cherry, 18 King County Sheriff's officers have fallen in the line of duty. Already this year we have seen 87 officers shot in the line of duty and 28 of them have been killed. Additionally, the police department enjoys a great working relationship with other law enforcement agencies working throughout Marshall County. And so far in 2018, 48 officers have died in the line of duty nationwide, with over half of the deaths resulting from gun-related incidents. With reverence for all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, the United States Attorney's Office is committed to combating crimes of violence, and the drug, gun, and gang offenses that fuel them, and preserving public and police safety. I am grateful for the professionalism, dedication and quiet courage they continually demonstrate under demanding and often unsafe circumstances. They all have my deep gratitude and respect.
