LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- City leaders paused Tuesday to remember fallen LMPD officer Nick Rodman.

Mayor Greg Fischer and LMPD Chief Steve Conrad joined Metro Councilman Rick Blackwell for a dedication ceremony at Rose Farm Park in Pleasure Ridge Park where Rodman grew up.

The group unveiled a memorial honoring Rodman directly across the street from LMPD's Third District.

"It's with a heavy heart that we dedicate this memorial today," Fischer said. "Hopefully, it's another step in this journey for us to come together even more closely as a city as we all work harder together each and every day to make this a great city."

"It will always serve as a reminder for us about what the community feels and thinks about the sacrifices that the men and women of our department," Conrad said.

Rodman was killed following a chase in downtown Louisville back in March. The man charged in his death, Wathaniel Woods, is being held at Metro Corrections on a $1 million bond.
