Henderson Police remembered the officers who gave their lives to protect their community by wearing black bands on their badges Wednesday.
The remembrance was part of National Police Week, which started Sunday and will wrap up locally with a Southern Nevada Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony May 23 at Police Memorial Park.
There has been only one Henderson Police officer to die in the line of duty. Officer Edward F. Meagher died while driving a fire truck to a fire in 1956.
He was collided with a milk truck at the intersection of Boulder Highway and Vegas Wash Drive, which is now Lake Mead Parkway.
