"It takes a special sort of person to put themselves in harm's way to protect others, but that is what members of the police family do every day".

"They were great people".

Reynolds said those three officers were J.W. Foster, Dana Shaw and Timothy Woodard. "We can't ask them to do what they have to do if we don't provide them their resources".

After her speech, current officers lined up to lay roses on the memorial in memory of the fallen. California is second only to Texas, which suffered the loss of 19 police officers a year ago.

"This year, 145 officers were killed throughout the United States", he said. Gun-related incidents have always been the leading cause of officer deaths.

An April Fox News report said the number of police officers killed in the line of duty is up another 10 percent from 2016.

They gave their bravery, their courage and their lives.

A wreath with patches from the five agencies, Lamar and Forrest County Sheriff's Department, Petal and Hattiesburg Police and Mississippi Highway Patrol was placed at the base of a flag during the ceremony. "While these men and women did not die in the hands of a criminal, we are nonetheless eternally grateful for their sacrifice". He said he talked with a group of women, all of whom lost husbands while on duty, and heard them describe "the pain, the suffering that never ends". They were parents with children left to bear the burden of their loss.

In opening remarks, Rev. Robert Stephenson with the Springfield Police Chaplains Association said last year an especially hard year.

"We're like a big family".

"May God bless you all and keep you safe", said Nevada law enforcement historian Frank Adams, fighting back tears.

"Thank you very much for what you do every day", Boke said.

Trump directed the Department of Justice earlier this this year to develop a strategy to better prevent violence against law enforcement officers.

The site says tens of thousands of law enforcement officers travel to Washington, D.C. each year to participate in planned Police Week events which honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, aims to make the murder or attempted murder of police officers, firefighters and first responders an "aggravating" factor when considering the death penalty.

During the ceremony, police read the names of officers killed in the line of duty and Mayor Mike Rawlings read a proclamation to mark National Police Week.

Dignity, honor, and respect were on full display Wednesday at the Dallas Police Memorial. "We honor their sacrifice", Cohen said.
