PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - At the end of July, two people were caught on camera vandalizing the Law Enforcement Officers memorial on the North Side.

On Friday, Pittsburgh Police said the wreath that was removed and stuffed into a trash can had been replaced by Chuck Crouch Jr. of West Mifflin.

“The sad part about being Police, Medics, Fire - all first responders - those people are laying their life on the line and they may not go home,” said Crouch. “So when I read it in the news, I couldn't believe people could just disgrace that memorial.”

Officers placed the new wreath at the memorial Friday afternoon.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the individuals who vandalized the memorial.
