Kansas Officers Who Died in Line of Duty Honored

KSAL StaffMay 3, 2013
The 31st annual Kansas Law Enforcement Memorial service will be held Friday at the Statehouse.

Two Topeka police officers who died in the line of duty last year will be honored at a ceremony honoring Kansas law enforcement officers at the Statehouse.

The 31st annual Kansas Law Enforcement Memorial service will be held Friday at the Statehouse. It will include the unveiling of a memorial that adds the names of Cpl. David David Gogian and officer Jeff Atherly of Topeka.

They were shot to death in December while checking possible drug activity outside a supermarket. Their killer later was fatally shot by law enforcement officers.

The officers were honored Thursday with a candlelight vigil at the Statehouse and an annual memorial at the Topeka Law Enforcement Center.

268 law enforcement officials in Kansas have died in the line of duty.
