Sinking Spring is doing something special for two fallen heroes and their families.

A memorial for Reading police Ofc. Scott Wertz and sheriff's Dep. Kyle Pagerly has been placed in the park off Penn Avenue. 

Both men were gunned down in the line of duty. They also worked as part-time police officers in the borough.


"They put their life on the line, said Regina Shade, borough secretary. "They're no longer here with their families. This is more of a celebration for their families to know that they might be gone, but they're never forgotten."

The memorial will be dedicated Saturday at 10 a.m.
