Albany -- Albany's annual law enforcement memorial ceremony was held at noon, as officers who gave their lives in the line of duty are being remembered and honored.
Bagpipes played, and officers formed a parade. A rider-less horse from the APD mounted patrol division symbolized the loss of the officers who died. Cars from all the agencies being saluted drove up to the Government Building as part of the ceremony.
A large number of state, local, and federal officers are being remembered for their service to the South Georgia area. The purpose is to honor the memory of the officers who gave their lives, protecting and serving the citizens of the area.
There were five Albany Police officers, two from the Dougherty County Sheriff's office, one for the Southwest Georgia regional Airport Police, and the latest, Marine Corporal Dustin Lee, and MP and dog handler, who died in March in Iraq.
Also for the first time, Georgia State patrol officers who have died in the line of duty are being saluted at this ceremony. Twenty-six GSP troopers have died I the line of duty since 1937.
Police Chief James Younger gave remarks at the ceremony, which was attended by many relatives of the officers who gave their lives.
