Roanoke Rapids police and officers from other jurisdictions paused to honor fallen comrades this evening at a ceremony moved to LLoyd Andrews City Meeting Hall due to inclement weather.

Thus far this year, 47 officers have died, a number up 31 percent over last year, Roanoke Rapids Chief Chuck Hasty said.


The ceremony was to be held at the Fallen Officers Memorial at Centennial Park, which was dedicated last year.
