Savannah PD holding annual Police Memorial Ceremony

Memory of fallen officers honored in west Kentucky

Flags across the state were ordered to half-staff Tuesday by Gov. Jim Justice in recognition of the annual memorial observance. These officers stand on the front lines in our communities. They do so in order to combat the dangers of the opioid epidemic. These loyal companions have given their lives to ensure their handlers, fellow officers, and citizens stay safe. They work long hours, investigate domestic disputes, robberies, rapes, assaults, homicides and occasionally exchange gunfire with criminals. They assist those who have lost their way and they provide help to those in need.

The President also took time today to discuss his plan to protect the men and women in blue who protect us - by giving them the resources needed to stay safe on the streets - including millions of dollars of military equipment.

Similarly, an exhibition called To Serve and Protect describes a specific event from the perspectives of law enforcement officers, victims, and bystanders.

The names are added to the wall as the sites are updated.

After the 2014 shooting death of Micheal Brown in Ferguson, Mo., police officers in that city and across the country got a really bad name, although the officer responsible for the shooting was never indicted. This year, Police Week runs from May 13 to May 19. The event was also about thanking current law enforcement for what they do on a daily basis.

As she stood surrounded by uniformed police personnel, Smith spoke of the importance of remembering the sacrifice of all officers, not just that of her brother.

During 2017, in the United States, 135 officers were killed in the line of duty. But we can pledge to honor their loved ones by cherishing the freedoms we enjoy. We do this, first and foremost, through a commitment to our common goal of enhancing public safety. "It's good for us to be here to take time to remember".

We most certainly must teach children that despite what they might see on television, the police are not the enemy. "Because, that's the reason we do the job".

Onslow County Commissioner Jack Bright said he can never forget the officers that have sacrificed their lives for others.

He shared a few stories of fallen officers, including off-duty police officer Charleston Hartfield, who saved countless lives during the Las Vegas shooting.
