MILWAUKEE — With the 2020 Greater Milwaukee Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony postponed, the Milwaukee Police Department has shared a tribute video to their fallen officers.

On Thursday, MPD shared a video in honor of all the officers the department has lost throughout the years. The video features photos from memorial services and officers saluting the fallen officers.

It ends with this, "Thanks you to all the officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Our prayers remain with your families. You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten. We have the watch from here."

Coronavirus may have forced the Milwaukee Police Department to postpone their annual memorial ceremony, but that hasn't stopped them from remembering those they have lost.
