TACOMA, Wash. —

Pierce County says about 2,000 police and fire vehicles from more than 150 agencies joined the procession to the Tacoma Dome memorial for four slain Lakewood police officers.

Vehicles left McChord Air Force Base at 10 a.m. Tuesday on a route past the Lakewood Police Department to be joined by Lakewood police and families of the slain officers.

The route takes them under a large American flag hanging from arching fire truck ladders.

Officials estimated most of the 20,000 people in the Tacoma Dome for the 1 p.m. service would be officers.

Additional space for the public to view telecasts of the service was made available at the University of Washington Tacoma, Pacific Lutheran University and the Christian Faith Center in Federal Way.
