Smith County's Finest Pay Tribute to Fallen Officers

   Texas Police officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice this year were honored by all Smith County peace officers Wednesday.

   Bagpipers played Amazing Grace as 15 roses were placed on a wreath for fallen officers across the state of Texas.

   No Smith County or Tyler officers died in the line of duty this year, but they say we should all be reminded peace officers put their lives on the line every time they get a 9-1-1 call.

   A 21-gun salute was fired off as a single horse walked through the square symbolizing the officer that will ride no more.
