The Independent published this video item, entitled “Live: President Biden attends 40th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service” – below is their description.
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.
The president has historically been a loyal ally to law enforcement, dating back to his days as a senator when he helped to craft the 1994 crime bill with the aid of law enforcement.
