Community Remembers Fallen Officers At Memorial Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

Police Week continues here in the Southern Tier. Law enforcement and the community gathered Tuesday morning for the annual Memorial Breakfast. 

The event remembers lives lost in the line of duty. Renee Rossi, wife of Officer Aldo Rossi, was the guest speaker. It's been ten years since Officer Rossi was killed after he was struck by a drunk driver on Route 7. 

"You know, everyone's life kind of continues on, but unfortunately, us survivors are at a standstill. And always remembering and recalling our husbands' death, so it's big," says Rossi about continuing to honor those who gave their lives for the job.

Rossi says her goal is to keep her husband's memory alive and let current law enforcement officers know their service is appreciated.
