DES MOINES, Iowa — The Des Moines Police Department started a new campaign to help the families of two fallen officers.

The department has created coins that honor officers Susan Farrell and Carlos Puente-Morales. The two were killed in a crash in March involving a drunk driver.

The officer’s badges are displayed on the front and the back lists all Des Moines officers killed in the line of duty.

The coins are $5, and all the money goes to the Farrell and Puente-Morales families.

You can pick one up at the Des Moines Police Department at 25 East 1st St. or at the Des Moines Police Officers’ Credit Union at 423 East Court Ave.
