Chicago police officers who have suffered catastrophic injuries in the line of duty will be honored with a new memorial.

The plans were announced Tuesday afternoon at the Chicago police memorial east of Solider Field.

A new sculpture will be created and installed at that location to honor the officers.

Injured officers were there for the announcement.

The effort is made possible due to a joint effort by Chicago five major professional sports teams.
