SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

A memorial service was held Tuesday for Oregon law enforcement officers who died while serving their communities.

At the ceremony In Salem people remembered Coos County Sheriff's Deputy Gil Datan and Seaside Police Officer Jason Goodding.

Deputy Datan was killed while on Timber Patrol when his ATV rolled on top of him.

Officer Goodding was shot to death while trying to serve a felony warrant.

Among the attendees at the memorial was Gov. Kate Brown, who spoke of her hope that no more names would be added to the wall of fallen officers.

“It is my sincere hope that no additional names are added to this memorial next year or any year hence,” she said. “The loss suffered by the Coos County and Seaside communities are just two reminders of the dangers faced by the Oregon men and women who take an oath to serve and protect.”

Both officers will be recognized nationally for the work they did for their communities as their names will be engraved on the fallen officer memorial in Washington D.C.
