WASHOE COUNTY — For the second time in the past 12 years, corrections officers from all over the county gathered in Washoe County to honor fallen comrades.

The Correctional Peace Officers Foundation ceremony at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park on Friday commemorated 18 officers who died in the line of duty in 2012.

The ceremony was part of a larger event called Project 2000. The four-year event began in 1990 and annually includes not only the ceremony but also educational and counseling sessions along with family activities for the survivors of the foundation’s fallen officers.
