Florence, Darlington hold service for officers

DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies from Florence and Darlington counties are holding a service to remember all law enforcement officers who died in the past year.

The departments are teaming up for a memorial service Monday at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Darlington.

Organizers say the service is in honor of all officers who have died, whether in the line of duty or not.

Members of law enforcement agencies from around the state, elected officials and surviving family members are expected to be on hand to hear officers' names read aloud.
