  • Fallen officers remembered at national candlelight vigil

"It's fitting to remember our local law enforcement officers on a week that remembers those who dedicate their lives for the protection of others".

As United States Attorney for the District of Idaho, I am honored to work closely with federal, state and local law enforcement officers. Delong was shot and killed by officers, who followed up at the scene. Nationally, during 2017, 135 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty. We also take this opportunity to pay tribute to law enforcement personnel who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty. And, in 2016, 58,627 officers were victims of assault, resulting in more than 16,667 injuries. Our nation's law enforcement officers face dangers every day, but now deliberate targeted attacks by people who wish to harm cops has become the new reality. Those law enforcement officers traveled hundreds of miles from across the country. Mainhart spent more than 20 years serving and protecting Arkansas communities in law enforcement and was a veteran of the Air Force. He hopes to have another memorial service next year.

"One officer death is too many", Attorney General Sessions said.

Last July, Detective Miosotis P. Familia was ambushed and killed while sitting in a marked police vehicle in New York City.

Flags will be flying at half staff on Tuesday in honor of fallen officers.

"The occasion that brings us together should remind every citizen that law enforcement officers deserve our gratitude and our respect, they also deserve our assistance", Franklin said. "We have come to learn that we can not always count on elected leadership in our country to have our back", Canterbury said before praising Trump.

Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police President Bill Owensby, a black mourning band on his badge, told the officers, "know that, should this tragedy beset you and your family, you will never ever be forgotten".

The names of all 93 fallen officers nationwide were formally dedicated on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, during the 30th Annual Candlelight Vigil on the evening of May 13, 2018.

"We're calling on Congress to secure our borders, support our border agents, stop sanctuary cities and shutdown polities that release violent criminals back into our communities", Trump said during a speech in conjunction with National Police Week, an annual event that convenes in the nation's capital.
