Dozens of uniformed police and their families have filled a Detroit church for its annual Law Enforcement Appreciation and Prayer Day.

Police officers, deputies, military personnel, firefighters, federal agents and others attended Sunday’s service at Greater Grace Temple. This year’s event singled out state police for recognition.

The Detroit News says a state police cruiser and a Detroit police car were put on the podium

Greater Grace first held “Law Enforcement Appreciation Day” in 1999 following the shootings of two Detroit police officers.

Bishop Charles Ellis III says it’s important to “continually offer encouragement and prayer for those who we hold accountable for keeping and maintaining the peace in our society.”
