LONDON, Ohio (AP) — More than 700 Ohio peace officers who have died in the line of duty since 1823 are being honored at a ceremony in western Ohio.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, members of the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission and law enforcement officers from across the state are honoring the fallen officers at the 29th annual Ohio Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony in London on Friday.

Three officers who died last year in the line of duty are receiving special recognition in the ceremony at the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy in London.

Those officers include Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael A. Brandle, Cincinnati Police Officer Sonny Kim and Ohio University Police Officer Nathan Van Oort Sr.
