The names of 394 officers that were killed in the line of duty were read out loud, 143 of those officers have died past year.

Even though law enforcement officers wear uniforms of many different colors, many wear something blue to show support for officers on this solemn day of May 15.

"It's nice to see people outside of law enforcement haven't forgotten and it's nice for the Mayors Coalition and the Governor's Office to put things together for this". Each year at the memorial service, they catch up with old friends who served alongside a loving husband and father.

As cities across the country mark Police Week, the Favelas become a reminder of the sacrifices officers and their families make each day.
