Fallen officers memorialized in Quincy
Officers who have fallen in the line of duty were honored Tuesday morning in Quincy.
This is all a part of National Peace Officer Memorial Day.
Officers were remembered from as far back as the 1800s.
Quincy Police Chief Robert Copley says officers come in every morning to do a job.
"Our job is not to take lives. It's unfortunate that every officer knows that that's a possibility... or it's a possibility they may lose their lives," said Chief Copley.
This is also the first time Missouri officers have participated in Quincy's ceremony.
