Northampton police wearing bracelets to honor fallen officers

Amarillo's service coincides with National "Law Enforcement Memorial Day" services across the country.

In Jacksonville on Monday, local police officials and members of the public paid tribute to local law enforcement officers who paid the ultimate price.

The bracelets are purchased through the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, which helps pay for the memorial in Washington, D.C. that honors fallen officers. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 15, 2017, as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 14 through May 20, 2017, as Police Week.

Speaking earlier in the Oval Office, Trump said police officers have "had it with what's going on" and said 118 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in 2016.

It honors officers nationwide who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The president previously used the color to mark World Autism Awareness Day.

Greensboro Police Chief Wayne Scott recognized the 22 officers that died and commended first responders and others who helped two officers in Guilford County survive after being attacked in recent months.

"The NMA is the place where the nation can go to remember our services and the men and women who have been killed in the course of their duty for their country".

Trump spoke outside the U.S. Capitol Monday at the 36th Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service.

"We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude".

"President Trump stands with the men and women of law enforcement without apology, and he always will", Pence said.

The families of officers Smith and Smarr will stay in Washington for several more days, participating in support activities. Since 1962, the week of May 15 (Peace Officers Memorial Day) has been set aside to honor our peace officers.

We also realize that families of law enforcement make sacrifices and suffer when tragedy strikes.
