Area fallen officers honored at 15th annual remembrance ceremony

Last year, five officers lost their lives in the line of duty in the state of Ohio. Early arrival is encouraged.

Standing under the hot noon sun, a Sacramento Police Department officer carefully plucked a bright yellow rose from a large bundle in his hands and handed it to the Sacramento County sheriff's deputy standing alongside him.

A ceremony was held Thursday honoring five Ohio officers, including two from Central Ohio, who died past year in the line of duty.

The chief of police unveiled a new "blue line" painted in front of police headquarters to honor and support law enforcement.

Kirkpatrick addressed the audience while standing before the black marble memorial wall in the lobby at police headquarters that bears the names of the fallen officers etched in white.

"I don't need to tell you, it is not easy to remain calm, professional and understanding during some of the events that our officers address each and every day but somehow our folks manage to do just that, and for that, we as a collective society are and will always be eternally grateful", Crowell said.

"Our officers have made the ultimate sacrifice", Police Chief James Craig said.

The most recent name added to the wall is Officer Paul Carlisle, who died on December 1, 2015.

Assemblyman Jason Frierson also spoke at the ceremony and presented a proclamation to the law enforcement officers and Parque's family.

Sacramento officers last mourned the death of one of their own back in 1999, when officer William "Bill" Bean Jr. was shot by a fleeing suspect in North Sacramento.

Troop P held their ceremony at its barracks on Wyoming Avenue, one of many held at state police barracks throughout the Commonwealth.

The ceremony allows active and retired troopers to remember those before them who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
