A somber ceremony in the nation’s capitol Friday as law enforcement from across the country gathered to honor K-9 officers killed in the line of duty.
It’s the first time a memorial like this has been held.
Among those honored – Bernalillo County Sheriff’s K-9, Xato. The Belgian Malinois died unexpectedly earlier this year after serving his community for four years.
Xato and other K-9 will soon be added to an exhibit at the National Law Enforcement Museum that’s set to open later this year.
