VIDEO: Canadian Law Enforcement Members Pay Respect to Fallen Officers

Albertans and law enforcement officers from across the province gathered in Edmonton Sunday afternoon to pay tribute to Canadian officers who have died in the line of duty.

Canadian National Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Day was marked across the country Sunday; each year it's celebrated on the last Sunday of September.

The ceremony in Edmonton began with the Massed Pipes and Drums of Alberta leading law enforcement officers to the south grounds of the Alberta Legislature.

The names of each of the fallen officers were read aloud. Wreaths representing each member were then laid at the base of the Pillar of Strength, a permanent monument erected in 2006 that commemorates all Canadian law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty since 1876.

Regardless of the jurisdiction when a L.E.O. there's always a chance they'll not make it home. They put their all on the line to protect the citizens.
