The Town of Windermere hosted a special ceremony Sunday, Aug. 29, to honor fallen police officer Robert German.
The main part of the ceremony included the renaming of the post office in Windermere, on Conroy Windermere Road to the Officer Robert German Post Office Building.
U.S. Rep. Val Demings led the ceremony and spoke about her appreciation for German on Twitter.
"Officer Robert German was known for his service and commitment," she wrote. "He turned down other jobs to stay in the community he loved."
In March 2014, German was shot and killed in the line of duty. He graduated from Lake Mary High School and Seminole State College Law Enforcement Academy.
Windermere Police Chief Dave Ogden said it is important to keep Officer German’s legacy alive.
"Today is just yet another day we get to see the community honor a hero and remember his wonderful legacy," Ogden said at the ceremony.
German's parents also attended the ceremony and honored their son with a plaque in dedication to his memory.
