President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush will speak on Tuesday in Dallas at an interfaith memorial service for the five fallen police officers from last weeks attacks.
Mayor Mike Rawlings requested the presence of President Obama, according to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. On Sunday the White House announced that Bush would join Obama in the service.
Also in attendance, Vice President Joe Biden and former first lady Laura Bush.
Obama is scheduled to meet with the families of the slain officers.
Obama was in Spain at the time of the shooting and spoke several times saying, “Whenever those of us who are concerned about fairness in the criminal justice system attack police officers, you are doing a disservice to the cause,” Obama said at the Moncola Palace in Madrid.
The service will be held at Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. The service is not open to the public.
