The Rochester Police honor their brothers who died in the line of duty with memorial markers.
Recently a group of Rochester Police Officers got together and decided it was high time that the citizens of the City of Rochester honored those police officers who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives in service to the community.
They realized that the funding would have to come from somewhere other than public funds, so they organized a baseball tournement to pay for the signs. They raised the money and dedicated the signs which are placed at the sight where each fatal incident occurred, by coordinating a motorcade with the Blue Knights a police motorcycle club and the Rochester Police. A large group of officers participated in the ride as they visited each sight and read each officers name and a brief description of the incident. Family members of some of the officers honored were also on hand.
Below is a map of the locations of all the memorial signs that are on display in the city.
