"Today we renew our solemn oath that we will never forget", Mr. Trump said before sharing a handful of stories of law enforcement officers. "We are especially mindful of the tremendous sacrifices of the 106 heroes who laid down their lives previous year while protecting their communities".

The annual North Dakota Peace Officers Memorial ceremony will begin at 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 15, on the east side of the state Capitol's judicial wing in Bismarck.

President Trump also says that he and the First Lady will be lighting up the White House in blue on Wednesday in appreciation for the nation's law enforcement officers.
