Fallen Officers Remembered in Hollywood

Six fallen Hollywood Police officers and one fallen K-9 officer were honored in a special ceremony Thursday.

The somber ceremony has gone on for more than 20 years honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. The ceremony includes remarks by the Chief of Police, the presentation of colors, a flyover and a wreath presentation.

Sisters Yvette and Nicole were just 2 and 4-years-old when their father Henry Minard was killed in the line of duty while responding to a bank robbery.

More than four decades later, the sisters say the ceremony is important not just to remember and honor their father, but to be there for others who have also lost a loved one in the line of duty.

"We've been very blessed," said Nicole. "Even though this tragedy happened when we were very young. I think it's taught us how to help other people."
