Area law enforcement agencies are honoring their officers killed in the line of duty. D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier will host the 31st annual memorial service. It is held in memory of fallen officers from the Washington region. The ceremony begins this morning at 11 at Metropolitan Police Headquarters in downtown D.C.

The event is being sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Police D.C. Lodge No. 1 and local chapters of Concerns of Police Survivors. Those who attend will pay special tribute to Stephen T. Johns, a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum who was shot and killed last June.
