Brianna and her classmates each had to make something in memory of an officer killed in the line of duty.

"Any time that somebody takes the time to make something, regardless of how big it is or how small it is, in honor of someone's loved one...it means a lot to that family," Ryan Adamson, from the Terre Haute Police Department, said.

The police department plans to give this piece to Officer Pitts' family.
