There will be a special ceremony Tuesday night to honor law enforcement officers who have died in the past year in both the line of duty and non-line of duty.

Genesee Valley Concerns of Police Survivors will hold its Annual Candlelight Memories Vigil at the Christ Episcopal Church on East Avenue in Rochester.

Among those being remembered are Webster Police Lieutenant Mike Chiapperini who was killed during an ambush on Christmas Eve in Webster and New York State Trooper Ross Riley who died last month during a SWAT training exercise.

The vigil starts at 7 p.m.
