This weekend and next week, fallen officers from across the country will be honored at a special ceremony in Washington D.C.
That includes Officer Jaimie Cox, who was killed after a traffic stop in November 2017. 13 WREX will be in D.C. for the ceremonies Sunday and Tuesday along with multiple Rockford Police Officers and other representatives from the city.
For those at home who want to remember Officer Cox, you can light a virtual candle in his honor. You can leave a tribute message to honor a fallen hero or an officer currently serving. You just type in your name, email and message and it posts to the website.
