A silent procession of police vehicles traveled through the streets of Binghamton's East Side to honor law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

The vehicles from local police departments, along with the Broome County Sheriff's Office and New York State Police, with their emergency lights activated proceeded under a large American flag on Robinson Street. The flag was unfurled from a Binghamton Fire Department ladder truck.

The procession started at the Greater Binghamton Health Center. It continued to the sheriff's office headquarters off Front Street in the town of Dickinson, where it was met by bagpipers and an honor guard.

The names of fallen police officers were read during a flag raising ceremony. Sheriff David Harder, who is retiring this year after serving several decades with the agency, was one of the speakers.

The ceremony was one of a series of events being held in conjunction with events organized for Police Week by the Southern Tier Law Enforcement Memorial Association.

A police memorial breakfast will be held Tuesday morning at Pheasant Hill Country Club in Tioga County.

Police vehicles will be on display at the parking lot of the Target department store on the Vestal Parkway on Saturday. Child car seat safety inspections will be offered along with K9 demonstrations at the final Police Week event.
