Several local police officers and Sheriff's deputies have returned this weekend from funeral services for the five officers that were killed in Dallas, Texas.

Deputies from Clackamas County, as well as deputies from the Clark County Sheriff's Office were in Dallas to pay their respects to the officers killed on July 7.

Fox 12 spoke with Lieutenant Andrew Shearer with the Portland Police Bureau who was at the memorial services.

"All the officers that responded there that night acted in a manner that was heroic and I don't throw that term around lightly. What they went up against to try and protect their community and protect their fellow officers who were down was nothing short of amazing," said Lt. Shearer. "I'm sad, but I couldn't be more proud to be a police officer."
