A senior at Dowling Catholic High School chose to help design a memorial for fallen officers at the West Des Moines (IA) Police department as his Eagle Scout service project.

According to WeAreIowa.com, Jim Clark raised $6,000 for the memorial and helped the agency come up with the design.

"I ride along with the police department every couple weeks and I see how they serve the community every day," Clark said. "Their motto is ‘To Protect and Serve’, and I wanted to figure out a project that would allow the community to help serve the police department and thank them for all they do."
