Cape Cod police departments mark National Peace Officers Day

Cape Cod police departments mark National Peace Officers Day

Among those names: Brent Thompson, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer killed in the line of duty, as well as Dallas police Sgt. Michael Smith, Senior Cpl.

May 15 is designated nationally as Peace Officers Memorial Day.

Huntington Police Chief Joe Ciccarelli said the theme for this year's National Peace Officers Memorial Day was "A Legacy of Honor", which is a trait present in each of his officers.

It is also meant to coincide with the start of National Police Week.

This comes after he gave a full-throated support to the men and women in blue earlier on Monday at 36th annual National Peace Officers's Memorial Service where he defended police officers from "unfair defamation and vilification". "Please, take time this week to thank your local officers and their families for their sacrifices and commitment to your community".

Johansen and Kesler take spotlight in Western Conference Final
How it happened: In the franchise's first home game in the conference finals, Nashville nearly played second fiddle to Gibson. The news article in question referenced an Underwood song in their headline, which read "Ducks Take the Wheel".

Officers even showed off their skills at Autozone Park by providing a K9 demonstration and using the police helicopter to deliver the game ball on Monday.

"We wanted to let the police officers who work out of these headquarters know that they're appreciated and very supported by this community", said Police Lieutenant Charles Warner.

In 2000, Officer Daniel MacClary was also killed in a motorcycle crash while attempting a traffic stop.

"The lives of these fallen officers aren't just the sacrifice they pay themselves, it's a sacrifice made by the family members who love them, still love them, and who continue to move forward without them", says Gov. Phil Scott.

Both the President and Vice-President added flowers to a wreath that is now at the national law enforcement memorial.
