South Carolina law officers remember the fallen


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Law enforcement officers across South Carolina are gathering to remember those killed in the line of duty.

The annual Law Enforcement Memorial is set for Wednesday at the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy in Columbia.

The memorial ceremony pays special tribute to Master Cpl. Sandy Rogers. The Aiken law officer was the first female South Carolina officer killed in the line of duty when she was shot responding to a suspicious activity call in January 2012.

The event is also an opportunity to remember other active or retired officers who died in the last year.
