Update NY State Police Troop K celebrates 100 years with an open house

Serenaded by a pianist, the troopers followed the family of Joel Davis into the funeral Saturday at an Army base in northern NY.

Law enforcement will only be allowed at the calling hours from 3 p.m.to 4 p.m., and the public is welcome from 4 p.m.to 8 p.m.

"Joel knew this was a place he could make a difference, and he was good at it", he said.

Governor Andrew Cuomo attended the funeral.

"Despite knowing the grave risks that he faced, he performed his duty", state police Superintendent George Beach II said. "Being at the hospital when Joel's family arrived was one of the most terrible experiences that you could imagine".

He's also accused of fatally shooting state trooper Joel Davis.

It was the same kind of showing from officers, who crammed into an arena in Rochester to pay their respect.

"You realize you never walk alone", he said.

"Our agency always says two troopers to represent whenever a state agency experiences an in-line death", Valerie Verduzzi of the Texas state police said.

Superintendent Beach told media that he spoke to Trooper Davis's father Friday, and added that the Davis family has appreciated the community's support this week.

Nichole Walters was buried in a private ceremony on Sunday.

Also in attendance were representatives of the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Marshals Service and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Paying tribute were thousands of law enforcement officers from across the nation and Canada.

Justin Walters is the man accused of shooting Davis and is now being held without bail in Jefferson County on two counts of murder.
