PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Some officers in the Portland Police Bureau traded in their standard-issue hats for caps with a capital 'D' on them Tuesday to show their support for officers in Dallas, Texas.

Five Dallas police officers were killed in a sniper attack Thursday by a black man who said he wanted revenge for recent killings of black men by police.

Pres. Obama was in Dallas Tuesday to attend the memorial service for the five slain officers.

To show support from afar, the Portland Police Bureau posted a photo on its Instagram account showing six officers from the East Precinct wearing the Dallas hats.

Six officers from Portland also flew to Dallas to join other departments from around the country paying their respects to the fallen officers.
