TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Three Tucson police officers are at our nation's capital tonight to honor 321 law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

William Bonanno, Colin King and Jason Winsky are three Tucson police officers who are representing Tucson at National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C..

Attorney General Eric Holder will lead a candle lighting as he delivers the keynote address. He will also read the officers' names, which will be dedicated to the walls at the memorial.

The 321 officers include 120 who made the ultimate sacrifice last year, along with 201 officers who died earlier in history, but whose sacrifice had not been recognized.
