Today is Colorado Law Enforcement Memorial Day.

People across the state are remembering and honoring fallen law enforcement officers.

The names of two officers who died in 2007 will be added to the memorial. They are state patrol trooper Zachariah Templeton... And Aurora police officer Douglas Byrne.

Also, after historical research, three other names will be added - including Paonia town Marshal John Armour Stitt who died in 1952.
