WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Donald Trump paid tribute to fallen police officers across the country on Tuesday, specifically singling out Southport Lt. Aaron Allan.

The event honors fallen police officers across the country. Families of officers who have been killed in the past year travel to Washington to attend the event and see their loved one's name added to the memorial wall and this year, that included Allan. 

President Trump spoke of  Allan's service, called him a "true hero" and offered support to his wife and sons.
