Law enforcement agencies across the country are flying American flags at half-staff to honor officers who have died in the line of duty.

In describing the qualities of a true hero, state police Major Steven Nigrelli said slain officers willingly gave up their lives to save others. This is the 36th year that the Paternal Order of Police has honored the memory of the courageous men and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty with this service and ceremony. In 2016, 143 officers died in the line of duty, and so far this year 41 officers have been killed.

Even though law enforcement officers wear uniforms of many different colors, many wear something blue to show support for officers on this solemn day of May 15.

Sessions promised law enforcement he would "have their backs", as he leads the Justice Department.
