White House goes blue to honor nation's police officers

"So lovely and so nice to have a President that honors our men and women in blue", another user wrote.

Tyler Police Department Public Information Officer Don Martin said officers from the department were in attendance at the National Peace Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Since that time, Texas has lost 1,706 officers in the line of duty, the most of any state.

While Monday was the official Law Enforcement Memorial Day, it's not too late to thank a law enforcement official in your community. "We wish, but we all know when we take the oath to protect and serve, there's a chance that an officer may not come home".

No community is immune.

The American flag was lowered to honored the 145 officers killed in 2016 and 48 officers killed so far in 2017. For those in blue, all of them, nothing is "routine".

Blue traffic lines were placed on Columbia Avenue in front of the Franklin Police Department on Monday morning to honor National Police Week, which began on Sunday, May 14 and will end on Saturday, May 20. He spoke of how he felt law enforcement officers have been treated unfairly lately.

The families of Americus Police Officer Nick Smarr and GSW officer Jody Smith made their way to their seats at the 36th Annual National Police Officers Memorial Service.

Sacrifice and memory is what brings us to this place every year.

Arkansas Sheriff's Deputy Kevin Mainhart was laid to rest, after being shot to death in the line of duty last week. That I can tell you. That same year, it was approved by a joint resolution of Congress.

Instead, our televisions and newsfeeds are dominated by stories that villainize those who do the most on our behalf and attempt to exploit the few bad apples working in law enforcement as representatives of the entire community. You would be wrong.

Vicki Terry-Lancaster approached the memorial and placed a rose in honor of her father's service to Smith County.
