"The names will be read as a part of this ceremony and be forever etched on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial-and in the hearts of a grateful nation", the Master of Ceremonies said.

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.

"It certainly seems that attacks on law enforcement, and the statistics will bear it out, that this is more and more becoming a unsafe job and more risky job than it was even in the past", says Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith.

Trump also signed a proclamation honoring police while surrounded by families of law enforcement in the Oval Office.

"Dedicating your career towards protecting the safety of others while potentially putting your own life at risk takes a certain kind of person, and we are forever grateful for the service these courageous men and women give to our communities", Malloy said in a statement.

President Donald Trump is asking the Justice Department to develop strategies to prevent and prosecute violent crimes against law enforcement.

The document goes on to note that out of the 118 officers who died on duty previous year, 66 were "victims of malicious attacks". "And we certainly don't want to let their families ever go without us thanking them for their service that their loved ones gave".

While this day, as well as this week, has been set aside nationwide to honor police officers whose lives have been lost, Ciccarelli said their sacrifice is one that is not only remembered today, but every day.
