GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Law enforcement officers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the country.

Representatives from the Greenville Police Department, Greenville County Sheriff's Department and South Carolina Highway Patrol will gather at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Greenville County Law Enforcement Center for a memorial service to honor officers who have been killed in the line of duty in the county.

Forty-two Greenville County officers have lost their lives on the job since the late 1700s, according to the Greenville County Sheriff's Department.

The Blood Connection has scheduled a blood drive in connection with the memorial service Tuesday at the Greenville County Law Enforcement Center.

Officials said those who donate blood will receive a commemorative law enforcement T-shirt.
