A memorial dedication ceremony was held this afternoon at the Central Virginia Regional Jail to honor law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty last year.
Friends, family and fellow law enforcement officials gathered to remember the 11 fallen Virginia officers and to pay tribute with the laying of a wreath.
Assistant Superintendent Susan Fletcher said, "Obviously the loss of any life is very important, and for those in law enforcement, the families make such a sacrifice, and we want to make sure that these people are not forgotten."
The regional jail has held a memorial dedication ceremony every year since 1995.
