Fallen Heroes Day honors lives lost in line of duty, gives honor to grieving families


LUTHERVILLE, Md. (WBFF) -- Fallen Heroes Day pays tribute to first responders and police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Hundreds will gather on Friday at the Fallen Heroes Memorial at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens to honor the men and women who have passed.

This year, a great deal will be focused on the two deputies from Harford County who lost their lives. The event begins at 1 p.m. along Padonia Road. The ceremony is open to the public.

Since last year's Fallen Heroes Day event, four officers have died in the line of duty.
