Monday is Police Memorial Day. People all over the United States will take time out to honor and salute men and women in law enforcement who've made the ultimate sacrifice.
Police officers, sheriffs, deputies and state troopers who have died or been injured in the line of duty will be recognized.
Dothan police officers say it's a day of compassion they look forward to every year.
Sgt. Bradford Baum says, "It gives the idea to us that every day is not a routine day and it helps the public understand a little more about what we risk every day."
