A Phenix City police officer is among several officials honored Friday, May 9, on the capitol lawn in Montgomery, Ala.

Sgt. Daniel Davis died last November after accidentally shooting himself in the leg. He was remembered at the Alabama State Fraternal Order of Police memorial service.

Attorney General Luther Strange pointed out the sacrifice of the men and women in law enforcement.

"This magnificent monument behind me, I wish it didn't have to exists, but it does," said Strange. "You notice it's the most prominent monument on our beautiful capitol grounds. That says an awful lot, because every school child who comes across the capitol—There are thousands of them every day, we've seen some walk behind us this morning—They see this monument. I think it brings home for them in a very poignant and meaningful way the sacrifice our men and women in law enforcement make for us every day."

Governor Robert Bentley was also among the many officials to speak at the ceremony.

Also remembered were Investigator Michael Stockwell of Orange Beach, Deputy Allen Kay of Dekalb County and Investigator Jeffrey Bryant of Centre, Ala.
