Hundreds of law enforcement officers, along with grieving relatives, honored fallen comrades Monday at the California Peace Officers' Memorial.
Gov. Jerry Brown joined law enforcement officials from throughout the state at Capitol Mall to remember fallen peace officers, including eight who died in 2011.
This was the 36th year for the annual memorial ceremony. The honor roll now includes Stanislaus Sheriff's Deputy Robert Paris, whose funeral Brown attended April 20 after Paris was killed trying to serve an eviction notice.
The formal ceremony included taps, a 21-gun salute and the retiring of the colors.
