SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

On Wednesday, law enforcement officers from the Coastal Empire will honor their fallen comrades.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police and several other agencies will pay tribute to the 51 officers who have died in the line of duty in the Coastal Empire. The annual ceremony marks National Police Memorial Week.

"There is no great way that we can pay tribute to their families for the sacrifice these officers have made than to honor them at least one week out of the year," said Chief Willie Lovett, SCMPD.

The ceremony will begin 10 a.m. at SCMPD headquarters on Oglethorpe Ave.
