In 1962, President John F. Kennedy declared May 15 as Peace Officers' Memorial Day, and this week around the country will be National Police Week.

Republican President Donald Trump bathed the White House in blue light Monday night to honor fallen cops for Peace Officers Memorial Day.

Deputy Walter L. Terry was killed on October 12, 1985.

"I think it's fantastic that we honor those who sacrifice so much to protect us and I couldn't think of a better use of my time it makes me proud", said Michael Motley, whose father was Sgt. Additionally, the police department enjoys a great working relationship with other law enforcement agencies working throughout Marshall County. "He was a Smith County Sheriff's deputy".

See the list of all the officers being honored Wednesday below. "And there's even one that they located several years ago that goes back to the early 1900s who was only an officer for a few days, before he was killed".

The families of Americus Police Officer Nick Smarr and GSW officer Jody Smith made their way to their seats at the 36th Annual National Police Officers Memorial Service.

"In Sauk County, we have lost five officers in the line of duty during our history", Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Jeff Spencer said.

In the 45-year history of the Hendersonville Police Department, four officers have died while on the job. Weinke said he believes the little girl, who was about 7 or 8, knew more about the meaning of National Police Week and Peace Officer Memorial Day than most adults.

"The Government has already committed £1m towards the UK Police Memorial and I hope the public also take this campaign to their hearts and recognise the importance of establishing a permanent place of remembrance".

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.

The scheme, being launched across the country is to help raise funds to build a new UK Police Memorial.

Sheriff's Deputy Duff G. Williams was shot and killed on August 26, 1869, when two men assaulted the deputy with a double-barrel shotgun.

Names they chose to give their sons, never wishing they'd hear them uttered at a memorial service.
