BEND, OR -- The city of Dallas, Texas is working through the healing process. President Obama spoke at an interfaith memorial service, Tuesday, honoring the five officers killed last week by a lone gunman at a “black lives matter” rally.


Funerals for three of the slain officers are scheduled for Wednesday, and Bend Police Chief Jim Porter says his department will pay its respects. "We take a stake in that mourning, and for closure we often send officers to these. In this case, we’re sending one officer from our Honor Guard to participate and help with the funerals, as a representative of Bend Police Department."
Chief Porter told KBND News the officer flew out Tuesday morning. "We had to put it together really fast. He’s going to be down there the rest of the week."
