The Big Rapids community came out to the campus of Ferris State University to pay tribute to police officers who were killed in the line of duty over the years.
The 14th annual Police Memorial Ceremony was held tuesday morning outside of the FLITE Library.
FSU President David Eisler spoke about the officers who put their lives on the line on a daily basis and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice like former Ferris State Unversity graduate Colin Rose who was killed in 2016.
“His death is a continuing reminder that when police officers put on a uniform and badge to bravely protect the citizens of their community, they do so knowing at any moment they could be placing their lives in harm’s way,” Eisler said.
The ceremony also paid tribute to all of the police officers who have died over the last year.
