The names of 324 law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice and died in the line of duty were dedicated at the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, DC Thursday evening.
The names of those officers killed were read by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., Jennifer Thacker, national president of the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) as well as other notable figures.
Of these officers dedicated, 116 died in 2009, the lowest number of fatalities since 1959.
PoliceLink attended the vigil and were able to capture just a small part of this solemn occasion.
