INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Drivers who pass the Indiana State Fairgrounds may have noticed a tribute to a fallen police officer.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Rod Bradway was killed while responding to a domestic disturbance on Friday. Clear Channel, the company that owns the billboard near the fairgrounds, created a tribute to Bradway in a billboard.

The billboard memorializes Bradway and is shown in all 12 of Clear Channel’s digital sign boards. The company said Lamar, another advertising group with billboards, has asked for the imagery to use in its own billboards.
"We were saddened to hear the news and jumped on it right away out of respect to Officer Bradway and his family,” said Brett Beshore, division president for Clear Channel Indianapolis. "We like to give back to the community whenever we can. We just thought it was the right thing to do."
The billboards will be up through Thursday, when Bradway is laid to rest.
