President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden are attending a memorial service on Saturday (16 October) to honour all those who lost their lives working in law enforcement in 2019 and 2020.

The White House has also issued a proclamation to order flags to be flown at half-mast on all public buildings through the US on Saturday.
