Law enforcement stands together in remembrance of the officers killed in the attack on Dallas law enforcement one year ago.
"Respect for our law enforcement officials must be restored in this nation", Abbott said in a written statement. "I ask that all Texans come together to show our appreciation for those who keep us safe", Texas Governor Gregg Abbott. The number of officer deaths in the line of duty is up 18 percent in 2017 from this time last year. But Blakenbaker did describe the intensity of the shootout with the killer.
Since then, officers have left in large numbers because of a pension crisis. Toward the end of an otherwise peaceful Black Lives Matter protest, a gunman opened fire. "God called all of us to be Dallas police officers, and I am extremely proud".
It took 10 days to process the massive scene. Five officers were killed, nine others were injured and two civilians were hurt.
Across the state and here in Brazos County, law enforcement will turn on their red and blue lights for one minute starting 10 a.m.to honor those fallen officers.

CONNELLY: The association has seen a threefold increase in officers using counseling services since the shooting, but Mata says many still feel vulnerable. Still, the mayor says these discussions are difficult. "We are a circle".
