On Wednesday, officers spoke about how important it is to honor, and remember, those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
"We want to have this memorial stone that we can look at and remember their sacrifices for future generations to know that we have a very proud history and we want to remember those who gave that ultimate sacrifice," said Sgt. Craig Stout.
Both monuments were made of stone imported from India - and artists were able to re-use the base from the first memorial. Despite having security video from the night the first stone was damaged, police never arrested anyone for destroying that monument and have placed the new stone farther from the street to keep it from being vandalized.
