Long Description:
This law enforcement memorial is located on North Shore Dr at the corner of Art Rooney Ave in Pittsburgh, PA. It was created August 25, 1996.

The memorial contains the following poem:
"A Part of America Died

Somebody killed a policeman today
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect
will be buried with him at his side.

The beat that he walked was a battlefield too
just as if he had gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half-mast
to his name they will add a gold star.

The suspect that shot him will stand up in court
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young, widowed mother must work for her kids
and spend many long, lonely nights.

Yes, somebody killed a policeman today...
maybe in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors
a cop put his life on the line.

Now his ghost walks the beat on a dark city street
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call....of himself gave his all
and a part of America died..."
