Law Enforcement Memorial in Rochester Gets Huge Donation
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- The Law Enforcement Memorial being built in Rochester has just received a large donation.
Members of the Dodge County Peace Officers Association presented a $7,000 check for the memorial to Olmsted County Sheriff Kevin Torgerson Monday afternoon. The money was raised through a Loring Guenther Memorial Golf Tournament, which is a yearly event to honor Dodge County Captain Loring Guenther, who lost his life in the line of duty in September of 2013.
Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose says the Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation of Southeast Minnesota is actively raising funds for the memorial with hopes of completing it next year. The memorial site is located at Soldiers Field Park in Rochester to the west of the Veterans Memorial.
The memorial is dedicated to law enforcement officers who have lost their lives while serving communities in southeast Minnesota. Donation information can be found by clicking here.
