ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Friends and relatives of police officers who have died in the line of duty  joined state leaders and law enforcement officials for the annual Police Officers Memorial remembrance ceremony in Albany.

The ceremony was held Wednesday afternoon near the New York State Police Officers Memorial in the Empire State Plaza.
 
The black granite memorial lists the names of more than 1,300 police officers, state troopers, sheriff's deputies and other law enforcement personnel who have died in the line of duty in New York state. More than half of the officers served with the New York Police Department.
 
Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy and Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos are among the officials who attended the ceremony.
