According to Marshall PD, 282 names of U.S. law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty have been added to the memorial and will be engraved on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

The 36th Annual Candlelight Vigil was held in Washington D.C. on Monday dedicated to those who have died while in the line of duty.

“As we come together again this year to commemorate the lives of fallen officers, we recognize the profound sacrifice they made in service to their communities and country,” William Alexander, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, said. “Their memory remains a testament to valor and selflessness; two core tenets that a law enforcement officer abides by when being sworn in to service. This solemn ceremony encourages us to never forget their enduring legacy of service and sacrifice.”
