Fallen officers to be honored

Flags are flying at half staff today in tribute to the 21,183 law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice throughout US history.

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

The Oak Ridge Police Department is joining other law enforcement agencies across the nation in celebrating National Police Week, Sunday, May 14, through Saturday, May 20, a press release said.

A memorial ceremony Monday morning to honor four fallen Mansfield Police officers, kicked off Police Week on May 15.

According to the White House, 118 officers killed in the line of duty in the United States previous year, including 66 in malicious attacks - a 40 percent increase from 2015.

"I gave my hat to Michael, and now he's with us. Then later on, as it progressed, Congress passed a public law dedicating an entire week to Police Officers' Memorial Week".

Local officer says they were honored to show their support to families.

"Obviously, we don't want more people added to that list, that would be one of my hopes", said Jared.

Names they chose to give their sons, never wishing they'd hear them uttered at a memorial service.

Law enforcement officers from across the panhandle attended the service.

A trait that family members said defines the two in uniform and out, a special quality they miss so much.
