White House goes blue to honor nation's police officers

As the state's chief law enforcement officer, Fox expressed his gratitude for the hard work and sacrifices made by all branches of law enforcement.

Observing National Police Week, the President spoke at a memorial service on the Capitol Steps.

This week is National Police Week and honors police officers across the country. "The names of more than 21,000 men and women who wore the uniform grace the Memorial walls, and they deserve all the recognition this day bestows on them".

Police organizations in the area held memorial services Monday in observance of National Peace Officer Memorial Day.

"Every child in America who has lost a mom or dad in the line of duty, I want you to know, your parents are American heroes", said President Trump.

"It means a lot, it doesn't matter if it's a one year officer or a 25 year officer it means that we have the same brotherhood and sisterhood", said Ron Slagle, Marion Police Officer.

Fortunately, Boca's police department hasn't had any officers killed in the line of duty in more than 40 years.

This is the 29th year of the memorial and this year's honorees will join over 21,000 other police officers whose names are already engraved on the memorial.

The Olive Branch Police Department hosted the 2017 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Monday morning. In early February, he signed executive orders establishing a task force on crime, targeting drug cartels, and increasing protection for law enforcement officers at every level. "It hits home because this could happen to any one of us", Robinson said.

"It's a huge event for us and it's something that we are proud to participate in, the families are going to be out there".
