The names of three local police officers killed in the line of duty in 2016 are being added to National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in D.C. Prince George’s County Police Officer Jacai Colson was killed by friendly fire. Prince William County Police Officer Ashley Guindon was killed only hours into her very first shift as a police officer. The name of Cpl. Harvey Snook, of the Arlington County Police Department, is also being added to the memorial this year after he died in January 2016 from cancer caused while working recovery efforts at the Pentagon following 9/11 attack.

on Law Enforcement


It’s easy to say that Nicole and Ervin Romans fell for each other fast. “26 days later, we got married,” Nicole said. (Credit: Gabrielle Karol, ABC10)

They became a family of six. Nicole said it was, in many ways, a perfect fit.

Ervin was a sergeant in the Oakland Police Department and a leader on the agency’s SWAT team. He had the day off on March 21, 2009, when he got the call that two officers had been shot.

“So he went out the door,” Nicole said. “An hour and a half later, I had someone knocking on my door.”

United by Light

Every year, we host the annual Candlelight Vigil to honor the officers who were added to the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Over 20,000 law enforcement officers, survivors, and supporters will join us in Washington, DC on May 13.


If you'd like to light a candle, your donation allows you to dedicate a virtual candle with a personalized message. It's a meaningful way to thank an officer you know or recognize the service of all officers.
