The vigil was led by Crime Line together with Gauteng Premier David Makhura and MEC for Community Safety Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane.
Eight officers have been killed in Gauteng and the Western Cape in the last two weeks alone while in the line of duty.
Acting Chief of Police Jabu Mapiyeye said the message was that cop killings must stop.
"Metro police including Saps must not give up. Further, those criminals must know there is no place for them to hide."
Nearly 60 police officers have been murdered since January.
