ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York State Police remembered three troopers at their annual memorial service.

The service was held Wednesday at the New York State Police Academy in Albany.

"The most important thing is that we never forget, and we want them to know that. We never forget the sacrifice that their loved ones have made for us," said George Beach II, New York State Police Superintendent.

State Police are remembering Trooper Joel Davis, who was shot and killed in July while responding to a domestic disturbance near the Canadian border in Teresa, New York. Davis was from Jefferson County.

They also are honoring troopers Darryl Burroughs Sr. and Michael Anson, who died from illnesses after their assignments at the World Trade Center site following the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Burroughs died in 2016 and Anson died in January from cancer.
