Hundreds of local law enforcement officers gathered outside the County Administration Center today to remember fellow officers who have died in the line of duty. The annual ceremony's roll call of the fallen included two new names: Deputy Sheriff Kenneth Collier and Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas. Their names have also been added to the glass wall that makes up the Law Enforcement Memorial, and the ceremony concluded with officers' families unveiling the engravings.
The two officers received a special tribute prior to the main ceremony with the arrival of the United States Honor Flag. The flag was raised over Ground Zero following the September 11 terrorist attacks and is now flown in honor of members of law enforcement, firefighters and the military. It was brought to the west side of the County Administration Center, where it was raised then lowered to half staff.
