Mishawaka holds police memorial to honor fallen
MISHAWAKA, Ind. — Mishawaka held a memorial to honor those officers who have died in the line duty. It was part of the Natioanl Peace Officers Memorial Day.
The Chief of Police says it is a day of remembrance, where they honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
"It's not closure by no means. But it brings people back together," said Kenneth Wikowski. "As you distance yourself from the events, you can speak more of the brighter times of these officers and what they meant to us."
Indiana governor Mike Pence has asked flags be flown at half staff in honor of the day.
