There was also a special ceremony to honor officers who lost their lives on the job. Chief Duncan says what they do everyday underscores the work fallen officers have done in the past. "Everyone of these officers who gave their life in the service of others; the people that they didn't even know; they're heroes; they're our fallen heroes; they're our nation's fallen heroes," she tells us.
