Central Police Services hosts law enforcement memorial service

Gov. Scott Walker

"These peace officers were a vital part of Iowa's law enforcement community", said Governor Kim Reynolds, (R) Iowa.

Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. "Not only those recently, but those in the past that have never been recognized and their names now put on the memorial wall".

"Our law enforcement officers have our deepest gratitude for their unwavering dedication to protecting our lives, our property and our liberty", Burgum said.

These occurrences, and the possibility of danger, weigh heavily on the hearts and minds of each police officer's family.

Two members of the law enforcement community in Washington State will be added to the National Memorial. They made the 300 mile trek and arrived in time for National Police Week to begin.

It's a day set aside to honor all peace officers who have died or been injured in the line of duty.

"It is an honor and privilege for me to serve with the dedicated professionals of the Greensburg Police Department". The other is Memorial Day. During those years, at least four of his fellow officers were killed in the line of duty.

He has frequently advocated the death penalty, and on the campaign trail promised "one of the first things" he would do in office would be an executive order applying it to 'anybody killing a police man, a police woman, a police officer, anybody killing a police officer'.

"When he was shot, I was one of the officers who was on the scene and helped corner off the area", Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin said. Our nation's law enforcement officers face dangers every day, but now deliberate targeted attacks by people who wish to harm cops has become the new reality. "We will return to these hallowed grounds and remember them regularly".

The memorial outside the state capitol now lists 277 fallen officers.

It's an annual event that kicks off national police week.
