Police Memorial Week remembers local police officers who lost their lives
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Officers from all over the area came together this week to honor police officers whose lives have been taken in the line of duty.
"We put on this display in remembrance of those officers and a time for us to come together as officers and enjoy one another's company... and also giving time to the community," said Officer Lisa Leombruni of the Rockford Park District Police Department.
Police Memorial Week wrapped up Sunday at the Cherry Valley Mall.
People got to speak one-on-one with officers, while kids could see cop cars, K-9 demos, learn safety tips and participate in many other activities.
Police said they want families of those officers to know their loved ones will never be forgotten.
The memorial plaque is kept on display at the Cherry Valley Police Department.
