At 7 p.m. Friday, May 18th, Houston Mayor Annise Parker, Police Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr. and members of the Houston Police Department will attend a memorial service at the Houston Police Officers' Memorial, 2400 Memorial Drive, to honor those officers who have given their lives in the line of duty.

The ceremony will begin with a procession at 6:20 pm, starting at the HPOU Building, 1602 State Street, and walking to 2400 Memorial Drive Memorial Drive to conclude with the placing of a wreath at the HPD Officers' Memorial. Included in the ceremony is a candlelight vigil for fallen officers, a roll call of HPD officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, a 21-gun salute, TAPS by the HPD Bagpipers, and a fly-over by HPD helicopters.
