President Trump said he stands with law enforcement during the Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service on Capitol Hill, an event to honor law enforcement officers who have died on the line of duty.

The definition of a peace officer depends on the specific jurisdiction. According to the White House proclamation, there were 106 officers who lost their lives on duty a year ago. My Administration has secured $50 million in funding for one of the most effective crime prevention strategies in America, the Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative.

"Today we renew our solemn oath that we will never forget", Mr. Trump said before sharing a handful of stories of law enforcement officers.

Flags across Kansas and the United State will fly at half-staff on Wednesday in honor of federal, state, and local law enforcement officers who were killed or disabled in the line of duty. They fearlessly enforce our laws, even at the risk of personal peril, safeguarding our property, our liberty, and our lives.

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Citizens are encouraged to do the same at their homes and businesses, in observance of Peace Officers Memorial Day.
