Law enforcement memorial service set for May 18

Governor Scott Walker spoke along with law enforcement leaders from across Milwaukee County. During the last 10 years, 1,512 officers have died in the line of duty, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Bike riders from Law Enforcement United stopped in Lexington Wednesday.

LEU Pennsylvania Division President Cory Reader, an Upper Macungie, Lehigh County police officer, is one of about a half-dozen riders from the Berks County area taking part in the annual ride.

Police are trying to trace the families of six police officers who died while on duty.

Muskingum County Sheriff's Lieutenant Michael Lutz and Deputy Robert Tanner Junior who passed in 2002 names will be on the Memorial wall in Washington D.C. along with every other fallen officer in America. Sometimes the ultimate sacrifice.

Curry's 30 lead Warriors to sweep after 121-95 win over Jazz
Golden State outscored the Jazz 39-17 in the period while limiting Utah to 6-of-25 shooting (24 percent) from the field. A NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors would be of total epic proportions.

Flags will be flown half-staff on federal government property next Monday to honor police throughout America who have died while protecting people in their communities. They leave behind their children, wives, husbands, parents, family and friends who mourn their loss, but also know that their lives were made much better and safer by the career their loved one chose.

The event starts on July 28 and participants will cycle 180 miles to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, where they will join a memorial service on 30 July.

She has been an active supporter of Law Enforcement United and participated in the ride the past several years.

"This allows us not to forget that it is a unsafe job and that officers do get killed in the line of duty", said Chuck Sadler, a retired captain from the Charleston Police Department, who spoke at the event.

Officer Kenny Moats was one of 143 officers who died in the line of duty nationwide previous year.
