LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The Dona Ana County Sheriff's Office is scheduled to hold a memorial in honor of fallen officers in southern New Mexico.
The office is scheduled next week to join New Mexico State Police and the Las Cruces Police Department to honor officers killed in the line of duty.
A memorial procession will take place the following morning at Tuesday from the parking lot of the former K-mart location on El Paseo Road to the Las Cruces Convention Center. A memorial service will begin an hour later.
The public is invited to attend all events.
Nearly 40 officers from southern New Mexico and El Paso County will be honored.
