BROOKLYN - A memorial ceremony was held at NYPD headquarters Thursday to honor 19 fallen officers.

The names of the officers were added to the memorial wall as they enter 1 Police Plaza. Three of the officers were killed in the line of duty, and 16 died due to 9/11 issues.

Among those honored was Detective Joseph Lemm. The officer from the Bronx was killed in December in a suicide bombing while serving with the Air National Guard in Afghanistan. He was on leave from the NYPD.
