TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Fallen Toledo Police officer Anthony Dia was one of seven police officers honored during the 2021 Peace Officer’s Memorial Ceremony, Thursday in London, Ohio.

Dia was killed in July 2019 during a call. The other six officers were also killed in the line of duty during 2019 and 2020.

The ceremony honored the memory of 809 Ohio peace officers killed in the line of duty since 1823. It was held at the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy.

Due to the continuing pandemic, public attendance was limited to family members of those officers who died in the line of duty in 2019 and 2020, along with their agency representatives and event participants.
