With bagpipers and motorcycle officers leading the way, more than 200 police officers, their supporters and dignitaries marched on Beretania Street from the main police station to the state Capitol tonight to observe the start of Police Week 2012 and pay homage to those who died in the line of duty.
This year, the focus was on fallen Honolulu Police Department officers Eric Fontes and Garret Davis.
Fontes died Sept. 13 when a pickup truck ran into him during a traffic stop on Farrington Highway near an offramp to Ko Olina. Davis was stopped on the eastbound lane of the H-1 freeway at Kaonohi Street at Aiea to assist people in a stalled vehicle when a vehicle struck his patrol car on Jan. 21.
