DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - The Miami-Dade Police Department honored fallen officers, Sunday morning.

Since May 2011, The Police Officer Assistance Trust initiated Project HERO (Honoring Every Resting Officer) to honor and remember those who have sacrificed their lives to keep our communities safe.

Officers are honored every year from May 1 to 31.

U.S. and eternal line flags are placed at each grave. Badge-shaped grave markers, labeled “police officer” hold the flags in place.
