PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Police Department dedicated a new exhibit Wednesday at the Phoenix Police Museum.

"We know it's very important that we remember and honor those sacrifices and that we also let their surviving family members know that we will never forget, and that we will always, always, always honor what these young men have done for the city of Phoenix," said officer James Holmes.

Since the first Phoenix police officer fell on Feb. 5, 1925, 36 additional officers have lost their lives in the line of duty. That includes John Hobbs who was killed on March 3.

"We are proud of the work that our officers do, and we know on a day-to-day basis the sacrifices that our police officers here in Phoenix make," he said.

The new Phoenix Police Memorial display has a permanent honor guard member, streamers for each fallen officer and a display for fallen K9s.

The public is invited to attend the Second Annual Phoenix Police Memorial Service, which will feature the new exhibit. The service will take place at the Atrium at City Hall Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
