SPRINGFIELD -- Thursday, hundreds of police officers from around the state paid tribute to those who've lost their lives in the line of duty. The state hosts a memorial every year.

This time, they said a special farewell to State Trooper Kyle Deatherage. He was killed in November when a semi-truck hit him during a traffic stop.

Next year's ceremony will feature a bigger police memorial statue. The state says it's running out of room for names on the one currently outside the capitol.
