According to the Dallas Police Department, 78 officers have been killed since the department's inception in 1881; the first to die was C.O. Brewer on May 24, 1892. Each year, the DPD pays tribute to its fallen dead during Police Memorial Day ceremonies, which took place today at noon at the Dallas Police Department Memorial and included the roll call of honor, a 21-gun salute, music from the Dallas Police and Fire-Rescue Bagpipe Ensemble and remarks from, among others, Mayor Tom Leppert.

We sent our Kevin Todora out to capture the afternoon's event. Here's his slide show.
