Beaumont police officers memorial ceremony

National police week kicks off this weekend, but today, officers from across SE Texas were honored by their brothers and sisters in blue.

On the steps of the Beaumont Police Department, an annual memorial ceremony was held to honor officers who died in the line of duty.

Family members were given a blue Rose, to symbolize the sacrifice each officer gave to the community throughout their time on the force.

"We honor and respect the sacrifice these officers made and we'll continue to do this to remind them that they're not forgotten they'll always be remembered and we just love our fallen officers families and we want them to know that they'll always be our family," Officer Carol Riley said.
