Memorial service set for today

On Monday, May 15, the annual Peace Officer Memorial Day ceremony was held in Washington, D.C.

The UK Police Memorial will see a physical memorial established, set in a lovely landscaped garden, inscribed with the names of over 1,400 police officers and staff who have died from injuries they sustained while carrying out their lawful duties.

I'd like to say thank you to all law enforcement officers here in Moffat County, both retired and still working.

Since 1907, 17 officers in Berrien County have died on the job (two other men honored at the service used to live locally but worked for departments outside of the county).

"You are the thin blue line between civilisation and chaos", he told law enforcement officers gathered outside the US Capitol for the memorial service.

Putin did, however, reaffirm his opposition to Pyongyang's missile program and expansion of the global "nuclear club". Trump warned in an interview with Reuters this month that a "major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible.

Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn and Butler County Sheriff Kenny Harden led the charge in paying tribute to those who've made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

Authorizes the National Computer Forensics Institute to disseminate homeland security information related to the investigation and prevention of cyber and electronic crime and related threats, and educate, train, and equip State, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and judges. "For everyone to come together for an event like this is just really special", said Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn. In Detroit, eight police officers have been shot or killed in the line of duty in the past eight months. "He was amusing. He would make you laugh on your worst, worst day".

We must do all that we can to support our police brothers and sisters, to help reduce the senseless violence that too often takes their lives, and to help ensure that their lives have not been in vain. "So that was from me to a group of fourth graders, who are going to grow up and be adults one day, to make sure they understand the importance of just simply being able to appreciation for service and for sacrifice". So far this year, 44 officers have died in the line of duty nationwide.

"This is not an easy time to join the profession of law enforcement". That's one more than a year ago. "It's also to honor the officers that are still standing in the gap between good and evil and that's what they do day in and day out".
