Police officers stood united in Port Richmond for a bittersweet honor for a fallen colleague.

Michelle Liczbinski helped local leaders unveil a sign naming part of Cottman Avenue for her late husband Stephen.

The 24th District sergeant was slain during a bank robbery call in Port Richmond in May 2008.

Cottman Avenue between Algon and Central Avenues now bears his name, ensuring the brave servant is never forgotten.
