NASHVILLE (AP) - State troopers and other law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty will be honored at a memorial service in Nashville on Friday.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol's annual event is scheduled for 9 a.m. and will be held at the Department of Safety and Homeland Security's headquarters.
