The 22nd Annual Candlelight Vigil will be tonight at 8 p.m. to honor 324 officers who fell in the line of duty.
For those who can't be there, there will be a webcast. Anyone can light a candle at home and watch.
You can also check the Officer Down Memorial Page for histories on these officers.
Today's Tiny Tribute:
This past April, the NLEOMF announced that--at last--the National Police Museum will begin to be built, mostly underground, across from the Memorial in D.C. It will be a place for the public, but also a learning resource for police themselves. The groundbreaking will be on October 14, 2010. It's been a long time coming.
To celebrate, here's a short video on a case nobody had to fight to close.
Sometimes justice is still actually swift !!!
. . . of course this video doesn't include the hours of paperwork and processing necessary to confine these sterling examples of human achievement. . . . thanks for that too.
