One of the stops for the trip is Fort Smith, to honor Deputy Bill Cooper, who died in the line of duty previous year. It was the first uniformed police organization of its kind in the U.S.

"Today's ceremony is special because it allows us an opportunity to reflect upon our peace officers - both past and present - and to be mindful of the sacrifices that they make", Reynolds says. "You don't realize day-to-day what they go through and it's nice that we have these to honor the current and also our retired members". 135 officers were killed in the line of duty last year, the highest number in our nation in five years.

But once taps or "Amazing Grace" played, he said the mood became somber and everyone was reminded of their fallen comrades. A large part of the way of life we enjoy is the result of our law enforcement professionals, professionals who are at work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to keep us safe. "It also gives them a sense of just that they're not forgotten". The decals are the names of all 232 officers that died in the line of duty since the inception of the Detroit Police Department.

Black Ops 3 Zombies Chronicles Details Leak in Game Files
Rumours suggest all the old Zombies maps from World At War and Black Ops are being remastered into a new add-on compilation. There has been some confusion as to whether this will be released simply as a 5th DLC for Call of Duty Black Ops 3.

Between November 1861 and January 7, 2017, 130 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty in Nevada. Weaver served with the state police for one year with Troop G in Bedford.

The service honored the 61 men who have died in the line of duty since 1840 and included the dedication of the Fallen Officers Memorial Wall, which stands in front of the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

The ceremony is unique for the State of Nevada, and all through the Capitol Mall motor officers, mounted officers, SWAT team members, K-9 units and Honor Guard officers in their dress uniforms could be seen. For Nowakowski, coming back to recognize and remember those troopers often feels like a reunion with his old troop and fellow retired troopers.
