A West Bloomfield Township police officer slain in the line of duty will be honored prior to the Detroit Tigers game against Minnesota at Comerica Park.

The opening of Tuesday's 2nd Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Night will be dedicated to Patrick O'Rourke.

O'Rourke was shot to death in September as officers responded to a report of a suicidal man in his home northwest of Detroit. The gunman later was found dead after a 20-hour standoff with police.

Law Enforcement Appreciation Night honors law enforcement and correctional officers and their families. It also raises awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Museum, which is under construction in Washington.

Pregame festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. and will feature a display of area police cars outside Comerica Park in downtown Detroit.
