Slain Dougherty County Police Officer memorialized

The name of a fallen Dougherty County Police officer was added to the Georgia Law Enforcement Memorial Wall Friday morning.

Lt. Cliff Rouse was shot and killed in December by an armed robbery suspect.

Friday Rouse's mother pulled the tape to reveal her son's name on the trailer that tours the state.

The 623 names of every Georgia law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty are etched on the side.

Rouse's mother Jackie Rouse said "Everybody on this wall they have a different story. They have a loss. And you can't bring them back. It's just a wonderful tribute to all of them."

Georgia Law Enforcement Memorial Wall Director, Detective Ed Christian, said "The family members, they walk up and the first thing they do when they see that wall, they are looking for that particular name. And when they find that name, it makes the whole thing worthwhile."

The Memorial Wall also traveled to Twiggs County and Savannah Friday.
