ROCHESTER, Minn.- With hands on hearts, and salutes held strong, the Rochester community came together to honor those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

On Friday The Law Enforcement Memorial was held at Soldiers Field Park in Rochester where the community gathered to show their respects.

Jonathan Jacobson is a sergeant with the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, he says he hasn't missed one of these ceremonies since they started. "It's an excellent way to pay respect to those who have served and died in the line of duty and also be here for the surviving families. Just to show them that we're still here and we still remember their sacrifice."

Hopefully by 2020, a Law Enforcement Memorial will be built across the street from the Veterans Memorial at Soldiers Field Park.
