The Odessa Police Department will host a memorial service at 10 a.m. Friday at Sunset Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home.

The public is welcome to attend the event. OPD spokesperson Cpl. Steve LeSueur said in an email that he encourages attendees to arrive no later than 9:30 a.m.

OPD and other local law enforcement agencies will hold a brief memorial service to honor nine local law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Agencies to be honored are OPD, Ector County Sheriff’s Office, Midland County Sheriff’s Office, Midland Police Department and Lubbock Police Department.

The local law enforcement agencies will also honor the 12 officers and four K9’s in Texas who lost their lives in the line of duty within the last year.

The public is also encouraged to replace their porch lights with blue bulbs through the rest of the week.
