WASHINGTON, DC (WISH) – An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer was honored in Washington, DC during National Police Week on Tuesday.

Officer Rod Bradway was shot and killed in the line of duty last September. His name is now etched into the National Law Enforcement memorial in the nation’s capital, along with the names of 285 other law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

The national monument now contains the names of 20,267 fallen law enforcement officers-from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, federal, corrections, railroad, and military police agencies-who died in the performance of duty throughout U.S. history, dating back to the first known officer death in 1791.
