Peace Officers Memorial procession honors fallen officers

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Members of the thin blue line, are honoring the men and women who came before them.

The annual "Peace Officers Memorial", was led by a procession of police cars, traveling to Mount Carmel Church in Youngstown.

A ceremony was held, during which each fallen officer is remembered with a red rose placed in a wreath, by a family member or fellow officer.

The ceremony concluded with a rifle salute, as the wreath was placed in the memorial garden outside the church.

"I know how stressful the job can be and I know how the uncertainty you can have every morning when you go out to protect and put on the uniform. The bond that we share from our many jobs and what we do, whether you're a township police officer, a city police officer, a deputy sheriff ... or the state highway patrol. Believe it or not, we're all bonded together as a family," said Mahoning County Sheriff Jerry Greene.
