Forsyth- At an emotional ceremony honoring nine fallen Georgia Peace officers today Georgia Governor sonny Perdue says "Dedicated peace officers work tirelessly on the front lines against crime, violence and yes, terrorism"

Familes and Law enforcement from across the state together, remember those killed in the line of duty. 

John Ross Juneau of the SouthWest Georgia Regional Airport Police, suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after chasing a shoplifting suspect at his off duty security guard job at Dillard's Department Store last Spring.  Today his wife and three sons gather at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center to trace his name off a monument.  Juneau's widow Susan Juneau says "It is devasting to lose that partner all you've known, you know, over twenty years."

Through each of her sons, Juneau sees her husband and is given the strength to carry on with everyday life.  "I think because of those three boys, my husband lives on forever. They've been very important in keeping me motivated. They've been my strength," she claims. 

Today there was a moment of closure at the memorial service for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Georgia.
