AUGUSTA — Maine’s fallen law enforcement officers are being honored in a ceremony that pays respect to the 82 lawmen who have died in the line of duty.

The annual observance takes place today at the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Augusta. Houlton Police Chief Darrell Malone will read the names of the officers who have fallen since 1808. Attorney General Janet Mills is the keynote speaker.

For the third year in a row, no new names will be added to the memorial.

Officials say the Maine Warden Service has the most names on the memorial, followed by Maine State Police. The rest come from local police and county sheriff’s departments and other law enforcement agencies.
