'We don't want to forget what happened'

Waynesboro is remembering the city's only officer ever to be killed in the line of duty.

Corporal Jamie Walker was fatally wounded during a routine traffic stop one year ago Thursday. Family, friends, and fellow officers recognized the anniversary with a memorial service.

The names of other Mississippi officers killed last year were also read.

City officials say the memorial service will become an annual event in Waynesboro.

"For the pure and simple fact, we don't want to forget what happened, we don't want the people in Wayne County, Waynesboro to forget what happened here and we're gonna ever be mindful, our officers here, of what could happen to any of them," says Waynesboro Police Chief Leonard Frost.

Fellow officers unveiled the James C. Walker Memorial Drive marker on the street where he was slain.
