NEW YORK (WISH/AP) – Thousands of uniformed police officers from around the country lined the streets in New York City to pay last respects to slain NYPD officer Wenjian Liu. Two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers attended the services.

IMPD Commander Hofmann sent back a video and pictures of the services.

Story continues below video.

Liu, 32, had served as a policeman for seven years and was married just two months when he was killed with his partner, Officer Rafael Ramos, on Dec. 20. Liu’s longtime aspiration to become a police officer deepened after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, his father, Wei Tang Liu, said through tears.

And as he finished his daily work, the only child would call to say: “I’m coming home today. You can stop worrying now,” the father recalled during a service that blended police tradition with references to Buddha’s teachings.
