HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Officers and families of fallen officers will remember those who lost their lives in the line of duty during a special memorial service in Downtown Honolulu on Monday as part of "Police Week."

The service will begin with a remembrance walk down Beretania Street. As a result, several lane closures will be in effect, the Honolulu Police Department said.

Beginning at 5 p.m., three Makai-bound lanes on Beretania Street, between Victoria and Richards Streets, will be closed.

Starting at 6 p.m., Alapai Street, between King and Beretania Streets, will be closed.

Traffic will be redirected at the intersection of Punchbowl and King Streets. Drivers going Makai-bound on Punchbowl Street toward the intersection will be required to turn right on Beretania Street. Vehicles are prohibited from going Mauka-bound on Punchbowl Street, between King and Beretania Streets.

Roads will reopen once the participants have passed.

A candlelight vigil and memorial service will follow in the state Capitol rotunda at 6:30 p.m.
