SALT LAKE CITY — Three officers with Spanish Fork Public Safety traveled to Dallas to represent the department in the upcoming services of five officers killed in the line of duty.

Other police agencies in the state have also sent officers to Dallas.

Lt. Lex Bell with Unified police said the department has sent two motorcycle officers. Sgt. Todd Royce with Utah Highway Patrol sent two state troopers.

Salt Lake City police will also be represented.

The services for the officers are spread out over next several days.
