Officers with the Killeen Police Department Honor Guard had the distinguished honor to participate in the Police Memorial Candlelight Vigil on the evening of Sunday, May 1, 2016, and again with the Annual Texas Peace Officer Memorial Ceremony held at the State Capitol in Austin on Monday, May 02, 2016.  Law enforcement agencies from all over the state of Texas, came together to remember the eleven law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in 2015.

The Killeen Police Honor Guard had the privilege of placing the wreaths during the candlelight vigil and escorting the families of the slain officers families during the memorial service.  It is always an honor to be asked to participate in these events, especially after losing two of our own officers.  These officers who died in the line of duty may be gone but are never forgotten, they paid the ultimate sacrifice.
