DC tribute to fallen law-enforcement officers draws crowd of thousands to National Mall

More than 4,000 members of law enforcement and their families attended the candlelight vigil, which paid tribute to 701 officers who died in the line of duty in previous years, including 434 who died in 2019 and 2020.

“Today we recognize the nobility of the law enforcement profession. We pay tribute to those who lost their lives in sacrifice of the safety of our communities, and we remember them,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said.
