The names represent all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, federal law enforcement and military police agencies.

"Montana's peace officers are dedicated public servants who work tirelessly each and every day to serve our communities", Bullock wrote in his proclamation.

- The five officers killed in the July ambush were honored Saturday evening on the eve of the kickoff of National Police Week. "The names of more than 21,000 men and women who wore the uniform grace the Memorial walls, and they deserve all the recognition this day bestows on them".

In honor of National Peace Officers' Memorial Day, Minnesota officers who died in the line of duty are being honored at the State Capitol and around the Twin Cities.

"It certainly seems that attacks on law enforcement, and the statistics will bear it out, that this is more and more becoming a unsafe job and more risky job than it was even in the past", says Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith.

Fortunately, Boca's police department hasn't had any officers killed in the line of duty in more than 40 years.
