WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is honoring police officers killed in the line of duty, saying members of law enforcement never let down their guard and that the public they serve should “never let slide our gratitude.”

Obama was speaking Wednesday at the National Peace Officers Memorial Service, an annual ceremony to remember those officers who died the previous year.

Among those Obama singled out was Bruce St. Laurent, a 20-year veteran of the Jupiter, Fla. police department killed last September when his motorcycle was struck during an Obama motorcade.

Obama said he is always mindful of the sacrifices made by police officers assigned to protect him and his family.
