They've served, protected and gave their all.
On Tuesday, the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department honored those behind the badge who have given their life protecting others.
It serves as a subtle reminder that they may be gone, but not forgotten.
Dozens of law enforcement officers gathered to make sure their brothers and sisters are never forgotten.
For each officer lost, a red candle was lit in their name and a gunshot was fired.
The memorial began with a procession from Grace Church in Fairview Heights to the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department.
