The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks honored their fallen conservation officers Thursday.
The sound of bagpipes echoed through the air as a wreath and flowers were laid at their monument marking the names of fallen conservation officers.
Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann spoke about their importance to the state.
Conservation officers are certified law enforcement officers charged with protecting Mississippi's natural resources, keeping people safe in the field and on the water, as well as serving as first-responders during natural disasters.
