The annual Pikes Peak Region Peace Officers Memorial service planned for today has been canceled due to inclement weather at Memorial Park.

The memorial service pays respects to the 33 Pikes Peak region peace officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives in the line of duty, dating back to 1895 in our region.

This service is historic and dates back to 1962 when President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day, taking place during National Police Week.

This entire week remembers the law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty while serving others.
