A fallen Chicago police officer now has a street named in his honor.

Tuesday, a section of South Nashville at 53rd Street is now known as Officer Benjamin Perez Way.

Back in 2002, the four-year veteran was struck and killed by a train as he was conducting a drug stakeout.

Perez is survived by his wife and three children.
