An interfaith memorial service, honoring five slain police officers, took place today, July 12, 2016, at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas.
The service was honoring the five police officers lost when a sniper opened fire following a Black Lives Matter march in Dallas. The location of the service is just a mile from where the gunman opened fire last week.
Here officials, including U.S. President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush and Dallas Police Chief David Brown, stand during the presentation of colors.
Rows of seats were reserved for officers who came out from across Texas to support their fallen colleagues. They were dressed in full regalia as a mark of respect, "their black uniforms accompanied by badges with black ribbons across them," reports The
Washington Post. The ribbons have the word “Dallas” written on them in large, white letters.
All attendees were also been given a blue and yellow satin sash to wear.
According to The Washington Post, security at the memorial was tight. (Getty)
