This is National Police Week. There are event plans across Northeast Ohio to remember the men and women killed in the line of duty. 

Tuesday morning, the FBI held their annual Special Agent Memorial Service. 

Sixty agents have been killed in the line of duty since the agency was formed. Tuesday morning each name was read aloud.

"It's not for just those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, it's to honor the families and make a point to never forget," said Special Agent In Charge Stephen Anthony. 

This is the sixth year the Cleveland office has marked police week with the Special Agent Memorial Service.
