"At every opportunity we need to let those folks know we appreciate the job they do", McDaniel said.

The ceremony featured a roll call of the Salina Police Officers, Kansas State Troopers, and the sheriff killed in the line of duty in Saline County.

"Ms. Lunsford's first words were, 'He cared about his community, '" Fleming said. Without the strength and dedication of their families, these officers would not be able to do what they do each day to protect us and our families.

"The biggest thing with law enforcement officers is the high suicide rate after retirement because of depression of things they've seen over the course of their career and several officers killed wrongfully in the line of duty and we gather to support to show support to all their families", said Alex City police investigator Drew Machen.
