The Fraternal Order of Police Bluegrass Lodge #4 in Lexington honored the 120 Law Enforcement Officers who died in the United States in 2012, including three in Kentucky, during a ceremony Thursday evening in downtown Lexington.

All of the names were read during a memorial ceremony in Phoenix Park.

The 120 deaths in the line of duty was the fewest losses since 1958, according to F.O.P. Bluegrass Lodge #4 President, Mike Sweeney.

The three Kentuckians killed last year were:
  • Officer Mark Taulbee, Hodgenville
  • Sheriff's Deputy Anthony Rakes, Marion County
  • Chief Herbert Proffitt (Ret.), Tompkinsville
