ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

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.
