MT. MORRIS, Mich. - Peace officer memorial services were held around the area Monday.

This one was held at Flint Memorial Park in Mount Morris.

The 58th annual observation service honored 19 law enforcement officers, two killed in Genesee County.

Monday's keynote speaker had a special message for the families of the fallen officers.

"We can never thank you enough for your sacrifice. You can see from this outpouring of support that occurs every year; how important it is for us to recognize and honor your sacrifice," said former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade.

Six canines fallen in the line of duty were also honored.
