The law enforcement community is preparing to honor their fallen officers with two events this week.
The annual Pierce County Law Enforcement Memorial Service will be held Thursday. The ceremony begins at 6 p.m. in the Sharon McGavick Student Center at Clover Park Technical College, 4500 Steilacoom Blvd. S.W., in Lakewood.
The event remembers the law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in Pierce County.
On Friday, the state will recognize officers who’ve been killed while on duty or who have distinguished themselves by exceptional meritorious conduct.
