Trump vows to seek solution to violence against police

Trump vows to seek solution to violence against police

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day which falls on National Police Week. And in 2016, for 145 police officers, it was.

Trump was joined by members of the Ulster County Sheriff's Department, the New Jersey State Police and the Phoenix Police Department, all of which lost officers past year. He said last year's fatalities of officers in the line of duty was the highest in five years.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Decrying violence against police, President Donald Trump honored the "brave souls" of law enforcement on Monday and vowed his administration would look for ways to reduce violence against police.

The members of the Martinsville Police Department will hold a memorial service for fallen law enforcement officers later this week, part of a joint effort with the Henry County Sheriff's Department and the Virginia State Police. He's one of 48 Honolulu Police officers who died on the job, remembered at Monday night's candlelight vigil.

"(With) the sacrifice they give and the stress that they're under, this basically would give them the opportunity to retire after 25 years", he said. "They put on uniforms because they felt it was their mission in life to serve", he said. According to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, www.nleomf.org, the law enforcement fatality total for 2017 now stands at 49.

Today's memorial featured an honor guard comprised of Amarillo Police, local DPS troopers, and Randall and Potter County Sheriff's Office Representatives.
