The Chicago police honored its officers who were killed in the line of duty.

The fallen officers were remembered at a candlelight vigil Tuesday night at the Gold Star Families Memorial and Park and Soldier Field.

As part of the annual tradition, the names of the 557 men and women who were killed were read out loud.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy and former police superintendent Phil Cline attended the ceremony. Cline, who heads the memorial foundation, has been battling cancer.
