Des Moines, IOWA --- All officers who give their lives in the line of duty should be honored and respected for the sacrifice made in protecting the citizens of Iowa. This year it is with great pride the State of Iowa takes time during Peace Officer Memorial Week to honor 15 such officers. These men each died while working to apprehend a suspect, protect their community from crime, or maintain order.

Please join us on May 14, 2010, to honor the men and women who've died to protect and serve, as well as give thanks to those law enforcement officers who continue to work in our communities every day.
