A national memorial to slain law enforcement officers in the District is adding the name of a Virginia Tech officer who was shot to death last year.

Officer Deriek Crouse was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Blacksburg last year. Now, he and two other officers will be honored at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Judiciary Square in an unveiling ceremony tomorrow.

The memorial is adding 362 names this spring. The names will be dedicated next month and will be part of the nearly 20-thousand officers honored on the memorial.
