Idaho law enforcement pay tribute to fallen officers

Idaho law enforcement pay tribute to fallen officers

So far in 2017, 50 police officers have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Gov. Chris Sununu (soo-NOO'-noo) has directed that flags fly at half-staff in observance of the New Hampshire Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Ceremony. This year, more than 2,500 people participated in the 3.1 mile race that took runners from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and back via 3 Street Northwest in front of the U.S. Capitol.

On Thursday evening, officers from every law enforcement agency serving Missoula gathered at Memorial Rose Garden Park for the 17th annual ceremony. This second event allowed surviving family members and co-workers more opportunities to learn about coping and grief, and to build important social connections.

Monday was Peace Officers Memorial Day and this week is National Police Week.

President Donald Trump recognizes the importance of paying tribute to fallen officers, and the need to help protect those in the line of duty as their jobs become increasingly more risky.

The observance pays tribute to the local, state, and Federal police officers who have died, or who have been disabled, in the line of duty.

Travel ban judges scrutinize Trump's Muslim statements
Today's case was heard by three judges who were all appointed by President Bill Clinton, so they could move relatively quickly. Watson found that the travel ban likely violated the constitution's Establishment Clause by discriminating against Muslims.

Each name of the 140 officers was read aloud, spanning across the country and multiple law enforcement disciplines. "The men and women who are sitting before me today; the men and women that we honor".

• On Dec. 11, 1969, Officer Charles Smetana was killed in a vehicle crash while driving to help citizens involved in an auto accident.

"Please know that you do not grieve alone", he told the families of the fallen officers.

- Twelve law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in St. Lucie County were remembered Thursday in a memorial service during National Police Week. The House will also consider the Probation Officer Protection Act, which would give probation officers the authority to arrest a person if there is probable cause to believe that the person has forcibly assaulted, resisted, opposed, impeded, intimidated or interfered with a probation officer in the performance of his or her duties. It was humbling to see that public show of support, and a reminder to our officers, staff and volunteers that people recognise the work they do to protect communities.

"Our rights and liberties, our whole way of life, depend on the courage of the men and women who wear blue". He was joined by North Las Vegas Police Chief Alex Perez, City Councilman and former Metro Police Capt. Stavros Anthony, among other leaders in the Las Vegas Valley police community.
