As a part of National Police Week, four Chicago police officers who died in the line of duty in 2018 were honored in Washington, D.C.
A wreath for them was laid at the tomb of the unknown soldier at the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
Fallen officers were also honored by the Police Unity Tour – a bicycle and motorcycle ride. The ride ended at the National Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington.
