Idaho law enforcement pay tribute to fallen officers

Mayor Linda Tyer read a proclamation honoring the week.

The memorial honors the lives of Springfield police officers killed in the line of duty.

"We're here to celebrate and remember. all that they were, all that they did and all that they stood for", Sterling said.

"We need to establish a fitting memorial that recognises the vital contribution that policing makes to our society and acknowledges the courage and sacrifice made by police officers and police staff who have paid the ultimate price".

The run has been held for several years, said High Point Police Maj. The exception was in 2001, when 243 died - 72 of whom were killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the most in any single incident in USA history.

Williams also told the audience of a conversation he had with Officer Adam Liddle of the Waterloo Police Department on the heels of a Supreme Court ruling that curtailed law enforcement's ability to carry out searches. "During National Law Enforcement Week, please take the time to say thank you to the courageous men and women working hard across this nation, each and every day, to bring safety and security to your communities".

"It's a very risky job, they realize that, the families realize that and this is just a wonderful way to show their appreciation to the families and to the officers themselves", Rigel said.

Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish also thanked everyone for attending the event.

The mechanics of the Trump-Russia special counsel
House Speaker Paul Ryan was more muted and formal: "I welcome his role at the Department of Justice". US President Donald Trump says he's been treated more unfairly than any politician in history.

"The sacrifices that these officers made and those of their families, survivors, and colleagues can not and must not be forgotten".

Locally, five officers have died: Capt. Michael Leonard, in 1898; Jailer James Fuller, 1901; Secret Service Operative William Craig, 1902; Officer Leo Sullivan, 1956; and Officer Timothy Shepard, 1988.

"Thank you very much for what you do every day", Boke said. I was recently telling a friend about a place that they set up on the outskirts of Washington D.C. It's been established as a rest and relaxation spot for visiting officers and it is referred to as "Tent City" (due to the fact that there are no buildings, just HUGE open-air tents).

Brian Williams, who started at the Black Hawk County Attorney's Office 11 years ago before being named to its top spot in 2015, was the keynote speaker during the annual Peace Officer Memorial Service.

"...[O] ne of my first actions was to direct the Department of Justice to develop a strategy to better prevent and prosecute crimes of violence against our federal, state, tribal, and local law enforcement officers", President Trump said.

The ceremony was similar to those in the past but with one exception.

"Larry didn't answer calls for service. It's a close call every day". "Now, more than ever, the presence and well being of law enforcement officers is vital to maintaining our communities' safety and meeting the demands of the profession".
