Police Memorial Week begins with ceremony and parade

CINCINNATI (Adam Clements) -- Monday kicks off National Police Memorial Week to pay tribute to local police officers killed in the line of duty.

Officers and families from around the Tri-State gathered on Fountain Square for a ceremony.  Then they moved to Cincinnati Police Memorial on Ezzard Charles Drive.

Mayor John Cranley and Chief Jeffrey Blackwell were among the speakers at the ceremony. It's a tribute to the men and women who serve and make ultimate sacrifice.

Seven Cincinnati officers will be awarded medals of valor for dedication and bravery. Other categories include traffic, education and investigative operations.

Our local events tie in with National Police Week across the country. Tri-State native, Officer Jason Ellis, who was murdered in Bardstown, Kentucky, will be honored in Washington, D.C. Tuesday. He'll be added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial.
