4 prison guards' names added to memorial

4 prison guards' names added to memorial

Among those names, fallen Douglas County Deputy Zackari Parrish, who was killed in the line of duty on December 31, 2017. During those years, at least four of his fellow officers were killed in the line of duty.

On Thursday, May 17, peace officers from across the Ozarks will gather to honor 135 law enforcement officers who have died within this past year.

Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley says it was moving to see how much support Texas has for officers. At the Department of Justice, we honor the memories of the fallen and we pray for their families.

Yet Craig Floyd, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, suggested that the country as a whole was making some progress in that area.

Monroe County holds a Law Enforcement Appreciation Event in front of the Monroe County Courthouse annually as well, and it's one of the most significant events I attend every year. The deaths of the other 231 officers were not known previously. We do our best to give them the tools they need to keep themselves safe, but there are risks of being an officer that are beyond our control. "As always, we have their backs and they have our thanks".

Friday night's memorial and candlelight vigil were held as part of National Police Week, which ends on Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15. The evening's program also featured moving musical tributes and a special recognition of survivors of fallen officers.

Established in 1984, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is a private, nonprofit organization that maintains the memorial, which contains the names of 21,541 officers who have died in the line of duty throughout USA history.

Police Week 2018 is here and FOX59 is in the nation's capitol to highlight several great events.
