Valparaiso Police today remembered fallen officers during a ceremony at the police department. Valparaiso Mayor Jon Costas thanked the officers for their service and Chief Michael Brickner spoke of National Peace Officers Memorial Day today and the seven days including today that make up National Police Week. Officers placed a carnation at the base of a memorial wreath in remembrance of the 120 federal, state and local law enforcement officers who lost their lives in 2012 serving in their communities across America.
