Congressman Lloyd Doggett says he attended the candlelight vigil in DC a few years ago, and when he found out Texas is number one in the nation for officer deaths, he made a few comments.

"One officer death is too many", Attorney General Sessions said. I have the opportunity to witness the work they do, consult with them on issues that affect our daily lives and really see how much they care about not only protecting us and keeping us safe but also making our neighborhoods and our communities better places to live and work. "As always, we have their backs and they have our thanks".

The Brevard County Sheriff's Office and the Police Hall of Fame will hold the annual Law Enforcement Memorial Service on Friday, May 18 on the grounds of the Hall of Fame in Titusville. So he and his wife Lora created this service.

The 30th Annual "United By Light" candlelight vigil is being held to honor fallen officers throughout the country, including those lost in Colorado.
