Officers Honored In Henderson

Those who serve in the line of duty were honored in Henderson today. A 21-gun salute was held in front of the Rusk County Courthouse as part of the ceremony. About 50 people gathered for the event, including members of the Rusk County Sheriff's Department and Constable's office and Henderson Police.

Texas Ranger Kenney Ray was the guest speaker. "We're here today to honor two groups. Number one, those officers who have died and made that ultimate sacrifice. We're also here today to honor those of you who give your life every single day," said Ray.

This was one of many ceremonies taking place throughout the country for National Police Week.
