Eight members of the law enforcement community lost in the line of duty have been honored at the annual Police Memorial Ceremony in Springfield. Secretary of State Jesse White addressed the crowd of police from around the state.
 


State Treasurer Michael Frerichs wishes the ceremony would be somewhat obsolete.
 


Six officers lost in the line of duty in the past year were honored as well as two railroad detectives from the early 20th Century.
