SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Monday begins the observance of National Law Enforcement Memorial Week.

Sioux City and Woodbury County law enforcement officials held a service in honor their fallen comrades.

"Every year, on this occasion we come together to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Woodbury County," said, Doug Walish, Woodbury County Supervisor.

"Sometimes the rewards mean more to us than the danger we are going to face on a daily basis," said Sheriff Glenn Parrett.

"These were extraordinary people who cared deeply for their community. They possess the heroic ability to stand between those who would do us harm."
