The ceremony began in West Bloomfield in 2009.

The memorial event, held at the San Mateo County History Museum, included an honor guard, bagpipes, flowers and food, as well as representatives from county government, the Sheriff's Office and police departments throughout the county.

"They've made the ultimate sacrifice, so it is not much of a sacrifice for us to run five miles", said Commander Adam Summers, who leads the Northern Nevada DPS Academy.




Alongside Perez and Sandoval, Carson City Mayor Bob Crowell also spoke in support of law enforcement.

The plaques will be mounted on the fallen officer memorial wall and unveiled at Detroit Public Safety Headquarters.

Those officers also joined in a candlelight vigil to honor the officers.

They called out 782 names, all law enforcement officers in the state of Ohio.
