ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Friends and relatives of police officers who have died in the line of duty will join state leaders and law enforcement officials for the annual Police Officers Memorial remembrance ceremony in Albany.
The ceremony is being held Wednesday afternoon at the New York State Police Officers Memorial in the Empire State Plaza.
The black granite memorial lists the names of more than 1,300 police officers, state troopers, sheriff's deputies and other law enforcement personnel who have died in the line of duty in New York state. More than half of the officers served with the New York Police Department.
Sixteen officers will be added to the memorial, including four who died last year.
Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy and state police Superintendent Joseph D'Amico are among the officials expected to attend the ceremony.
