PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) —  Firefighters, police officers, and city leaders gathered inside Pawtucket City Hall Monday to unveil a plaque in memory of law enforcement members who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Mayor Donald GrebIen, alongside current firefighters and officers, unveiled the plaque in the lobby, where it will be displayed.

The plaque bears the names of members of the Pawtucket Fire and Police Departments who lost their lives in service to the city.

Grebien and the Pawtucket Hall of Fame held the ceremony as a lead up to the Pawtucket Hall of Fame Committee 2018 Awards Banquet.

During the ceremony, Acting Public Safety Director Chief Tina Goncalves thanked the city for recognizing the law enforcement members who risk their lives every day.

“It takes a special individual to swear, to serve and protect, knowing that they make that sacrifice not only to themselves but to their families as well,” she said. “Yet, the officers before you and those that are now on the wall have done so.”
