White House goes blue to honor nation's police officers

This is the 36th year that the Paternal Order of Police has honored the memory of the fearless men and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty with this service and ceremony.

Honoring the men and women in blue who gave their lives in the line of duty. Since 1962, the week of May 15 (Peace Officers Memorial Day) has been set aside to honor our peace officers. Trump also signed a proclamation honoring police while surrounded by families of law enforcement in the Oval Office.

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

The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement.

Since that time, Texas has lost 1,706 officers in the line of duty, the most of any state.

Australia has "better health care than we do"
President Donald Trump has praised Australia's single-payer health care system, describing it as superior to the USA model. White House officials said the US-Australia refugee deal still stood, but remained a "raw nerve" for Mr Trump.

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.

"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.

This memorial is held every year regardless of whether a local law enforcement officer died or not.

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

And every year since 1982, members of our law enforcement community, their families and friends have gathered on this day in Washington, D.C.to mourn the fallen and remember their heroism through this memorial service.
