The 2003 Law Enforcement fatalities in the State of Florida were read, with a special dedication to the memory of fallen Indian River Deputy Richard R. Raczkoski who sacrificed his life on September 23, 1986. In the closing remarks it was stated "It is not how these officers died that makes them heroes… It is how they lived."
