MHP honors fallen officers across the state

The Mississippi Highway Patrol honored fellow officers who've lost their lives in the line of duty this afternoon.  At graveside services across the state, details of troopers said prayers and laid wreaths for officers who've made the ultimate sacrifice for their communities.

State troopers and officers with the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics were honored.  Here in the Pine Belt, services were held in Hattiesburg, Laurel, Ellisville, Petal and Raleigh.

These ceremonies were part of a week-long tribute to fallen officers across the state.
