Cedar Rapids remembers fallen officers


Fallen police officers were remembered at a Cedar Rapids ceremony Saturday afternoon.

The Cedar Rapids Police Department paid tribute to the six officers who have been killed in the line of duty.

"We're celebrating our officers and the work that we do, but remembering those that have given their lives while doing their job," said Sgt. Christy Hamblin with CRPD.

City buildings will fly their flags at half staff, and officers will wear a black band on their badges for the next week.
