NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) – The 34th Annual Aquidneck Island National Police Parade took place in Middletown and Newport Sunday.

The parade, the only one of its kind, draws law enforcement and military marchers from around the country together to remember law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

Aside from organizations from New England, departments from as far away as Iowa and Illinois have attended – even a contingent from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Team from Washington.

The parade stepped off at 11:50 a.m. and headed south on West Main Road, where it concluded in Washington Square.
