The McAllen Police Department held a special ceremony this morning for all of its officers as part of National Police Week.
They paid tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving and protecting the community. This was part of the department’s efforts to continue supporting the families of fallen or retired officers.
Chief Victor Rodriguez said, “We approach this with the idea of letting people know that we remember. Let them know that we appreciate, and also celebrate and applaud those that get up every day to do this work.”
Police departments from surrounding cities also took part in this ceremony.
