Law enforcement officers all over the Mid-South are participating in and hosting various activities during National Police Week.

That's what law enforcement memorial day is all about.

But, Monday, they joined families from across county to salute the fallen, people many knew as law enforcement officers, but they remember as their sons, brothers and uncles.

"It's really been something different, but we miss Nick very much", said Janice Smarr, mother of fallen Officer Nick Smarr.

Vermont Mayors Coalition, Governor Scott and state and local law enforcement paid tribute to 23 Vermont officers who gave up their life in the line of duty.

He said last year's fatalities of officers in the line of duty was the highest in five years.
