The wreaths will be placed at their graves during the holiday season.

The holidays can be a difficult time for the families of these fallen heroes.

KSP says a symbol, such as a wreath, can help.



The family of a Philadelphia Police Officer killed in the line of duty in 2009 started the program.

The wreaths will have a blue ribbon with a trooper’s name and end of watch date in the center.

The wreaths will be placed at graves this year in honor of Trooper Cameron Ponder, whose end of watch was September 13, 2015.
