OXNARD, Calif. — As the sound of bagpipes filled the air and a large American flag suspended from fire engine ladders rustled in the wind, scores of Oxnard police officers marched quietly past the city's police station Wednesday during a ceremony honoring fallen comrades.

Timed to coincide with National Police Week, which honors fallen officers around the nation, the event at Third and C streets was the department's 11th annual memorial for its seven officers who died in the line of duty.
