The event is part of the organization’s annual conference. The organization represents more than 3,000 black executive leaders and officers internationally.

Organizers say more than 1,200 people took part in the march, including civil rights leaders and young people who hope to be criminal justice leaders themselves.

Capt. Anthony April, an Alaska State Trooper who participated in the march, says the fallen officers represented the community they served. He says the “march represents being involved in the community through their service.”
