The Police Memorial in Huron, South Dakota, was dedicated on May 21, 2011. This monument, located near the municipal building, memorializes Huron police officers killed in the line of duty. Decades have passed since the men died, but this memorial now stands in their honor to ensure they never are forgotten. The police department worked on the memorial for more than 2 years. Members of the community and officers themselves donated the $6,000 needed to erect it. In more than 100 years, three police officers have died while serving with the Huron Police Department. Detectives spent hours searching for relatives of all three officers so they could participate in the ceremony.
