TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Charlie Crist joined other top state officials in a solemn tribute to law enforcement today, dedicating a large bronze monument to slain police officers at the state Capitol.

"This memorial will forever be a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice paid by your loved ones," Crist told a group of family members of law-enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
