FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Officers who lost their lives in the line of duty are being honored this week for a ride to remember. Family, friends and those who want to honor officers gathered in Bluffton to start the route on Wednesday.

This ride was created to pay respects to Indiana’s fallen law enforcement heroes and allows for the opportunity to let survivors know that they and their loved ones are not forgotten.
