The Los Angeles Police Department will host a Memorial Ceremony to honor of the 238 LAPD Officers killed in the line of duty. The ceremony will be attended by LAPD personnel, City officials, members of the community and family members of fallen officers.
Included in the Memorial Ceremony will be a special tribute to LAPD Officers who passed away as the result of complications from COVID-19. Chief Michel Moore will also announce the inclusion of fifteen officers who passed away in 1918/1919, as a result of the Spanish Influenza.
The program will also feature traditional Police Honors; the “roll call” of fallen heroes, a rifle volley, the “missing man” formation helicopter fly-over, the rider less horse, the symbolic sounds of bagpipers playing Amazing Grace, a solo bugler playing Taps and a time-honored “End of Watch Broadcast.” At the conclusion of the program, family members will place a long-stem rose near their loved one’s name plate at the newly renovated Memorial Wall.

In addition, Police Officer Annie Hernandez, a Spanish speaking Public Information Officer, will be available to coordinate interviews.
