The Emporia Area Law Enforcement Memorial will honor the fallen officers who sacrificed everything coming Wednesday evening.

This tribute will feature all local law enforcement agencies gathering to commemorate the lives of the officers who lost their lives in the line of service. Emporia Police Sergeant Lisa Sage previews the special ceremony.

Sage also emphasizes the value that the law enforcement presence has on the safety of our community. While both the Emporia Police Department and Sheriff's Department will attend the Memorial, Sage says that Emporia's other public safety officials will participate as well.

The Memorial ceremony begins at 5:30 pm at William L. White Auditorium and will conclude around 6:00 pm. KVOE will be airing the service on air and will be available to watch live on KVOE-TV. For more information, visit the event's Facebook page.
