RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Richmond Police Department honored its officers who lost their lives in the line of duty during a ceremony on Thursday.

The ceremony was in recognition of National Police Week.

Mayor Levar Stoney was in attendance and said the day about respecting those who gave their lives.

“This morning is not about rhetoric, this morning is about respect, respect for the fallen, respect for those who put on the uniform each and every day... and respect for the families who support our officers each and every day,” Stoney said.

The service included families of the fallen officers and a wreath was placed.
