Thursday, May 05, 2011

Thursday the Los Angeles Police Dept. held a special memorial service in remembrance of the 204 officers who have been killed in uniform since 1907.

Special recognition was given to officers Joshua Cullins and R.J. Cottle, who were killed while on active military duty in Afghanistan last year.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck unveiled two bronze plaques in their honor.

The LAPD averages one on-duty officer death per year.

The assault rate on LAPD officers this year is up 25 percent over last year.
