The local Fraternal Order of Police auxiliary will distribute blue ribbons next week to honor law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty.

Auxiliary group members will hand out ribbons at two local discount stores on May 15, which has been designated as "National Police Officer's Memorial Day" since 1963.

The group will be on hand from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Kmart, 3106 Iowa, and from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Wal-Mart, 2727 Iowa.

Members urge local residents to wear the ribbons to pay tribute to fallen officers, recognize and honor their survivors and to show support for working officers.
