Guam - As part of Police Week activities, the Guam Police Department held a special memorial service at the GPD Memorial Badge Monument Park in Hagatna late yesterday.

The sunset ceremony was to pay tribute and honor all law enforcement officers who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Lt Governor and former police officer Ray Tenorio said we should not only honor those who have passed one but those among us who serve and protect every single day.

"Ladies and gentlemen, rest assured every single day 24 hours a day every single day of the year someone in this community is getting up getting ready to go to work to protect you and we may not always see them we may not always recognize them every single day but this is the week to do that to remember the people that have fallen behind us whose faces most of which I actually worked with some who have died in the 70's who preceded me but ultimately many of them have died since we honor them and remember them today because they deserve it not just for their families because of their vocation their careers we want to thank those who assist and making sure that the people they apprehended that AG's and strict attorney all those involved in public safety no matter where your at your applauded as peace officers," he said.
