Hundreds of people gathered in the State Capitol Rotunda to honor Missouri's fallen law enforcement officers.
The annual event remembers those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
State leaders and law enforcement officers from across the state joined family members of fallen officers during this annual ceremony.
Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Chris Parsons was added to the list of Missouri law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.
Last December, Deputy Parsons was helping load a woman into an ambulance when her son exited her home and allegedly fatally shot the deputy.
State records show that at least one Missouri law enforcement officer has died in the line of duty in each of the last 102 years.
