PHOENIX -

The Maricopa County Sheriff's office gathered Friday morning to remember fallen law enforcement officers.

The memorial tribute ceremony called "They Served Well" has provided financial help to families of fallen officers across Arizona for 12 years.

Deputies, police officers, firefighters and officers on the Navajo Nation were honored.

With the help of sponsors, the MCSO Advisory Posse and Memorial Fund has raised over $500,000.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio spoke at the ceremony, in addition to a moment of silence, a fly over and a 21 gun salute.

"We can't forget our dedicated deputy sheriff's officers that gave their lives and served the public," said Arpaio. "I've lost seven deputies, killed in the line of duty, since I've been sheriff. That's sad, but we have to remember them and we also have to take care of their families."

The event has previously been a walk, but a more formal ceremony was planned this year.

MCSO didn't leave the inmates out of the service, they were seen helping set up for the event.
