CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Police Department honored fallen officers on Fountain Square Tuesday.

The memorial ceremony was especially poignant this year with the loss of Officer Sonny Kim, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on June 19, 2015.

Chief Eliot Isaac presented a posthumous Award of Valor to Officer Kim followed by a wreath-laying ceremony. Kim's wife and the Cincinnati Honor Guard placed a wreath at the memorial.

The events will honor whose who serve and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
