It is the 16th anniversary of their passing. They lost their lives in the line of duty while responding to a domestic violence call.
Odessa Police Chief Mike Gerke shared that "It's still fresh. I worked with these men, and many on our command staff worked with these men. It's still fresh with them.'
The wreaths will be displayed until sunset in remembrance of the two officers. Anyone wishing to pay their respects is encouraged to visit the memorial during this time.
