HICKSVILLE - A somber ceremony was held in Hicksville today to honor brave police officers from New York who have died in the line of duty.
New York's Fraternal Order of Police organized the ceremony, which was attended by law enforcement agencies from across the state.
The names of 11 fallen officers were etched onto a memorial wall at the fraternal order's headquarters that already has more than 1,300 names on it.
Two fallen officers from Nassau County were honored at the service. Officer Joseph Olivieri died after he was struck on the Long Island Expressway while responding to a crash. Also honored was emergency services officer Arthur Lopez, who was shot and killed while trying to arrest an alleged hit-and-run driver.
