Cheyenne Police are wearing a special black shroud on their badges this week to honor police officers who have died in the line of duty, according to Police Chief Brian Kozak.

The chief says the shroud hit home for him personally this week as a good friend of his on the Mesa, Arizona police department was killed on duty after being struck by a drunk driver.

Kozak says the shroud is to honor not only Wyoming law enforcement officers who have died, but also those across the country who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
