    Arlington officers gather to unveil a sign and wreath in honor of fallen police officer Craig Story.

    The Arlington Police Association unveiled Friday the last of eight wreaths and signs installed around the city that memorialize the city's fallen officers.

    Over the last year, the department has installed signs designed to recognize the sacrifice each officer has made while serving the citizens of the city. In some cases, the signs were installed where the officer died while, in others, the signs were installed at locations designated by the officer's surviving family.

    One by one, the signs and wreaths were revealed on the anniversary date of the officer's end of service.

    On Jan. 13, two years after his death, a wreath and sign in honor of Officer Craig Story were both unveiled at the intersection of Inwood Drive and South Cooper Street. Story, a 7-year veteran of the department and a motorcycle officer, was killed in the intersection during a traffic crash.

    The signs and wreaths were donated to the Arlington Police Association.
