Nevada pays tribute to fallen law enforcement
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- At the center of Nevada's Capitol grounds in Carson City stands a tall granite silhouette of the state serving as a reminder of the 123 Nevada law enforcement officers who have lost their lives on the job.
Hundreds converged on the site Thursday for the 16th annual memorial service for the fallen. About 150 officers dressed in their agencies' formal uniforms were part of the ceremony meant to remember the sacrifices of their predecessors.
Officers Vernon Carvin of Carson City, Lt. Glenn Barnes of the Washoe County sheriff's office and Deputy Denny Van Lawrence of Elko were honored Thursday.
