Fallen officers honored in ceremony

The Springfield Police Department honored their fellow police officers who were killed in the line of duty with a ceremony Wednesday evening.

The annual "Blue Light Ceremony" is a time for solemn remembrance during the holiday season. An officer has not been killed while on duty in 23 years, but the force still takes time to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their job.

Doris Beauregard-Shecrallah, a widow of a Springfield police officer, asked people to put a blue light in their windows to remind officers that their hard work is respected.

More than 50 people attended the ceremony.
