URBANDALE (WHO) -

This holiday season, Iowa police departments are remembering officers who died this year.

Stetson Building Products Company donated a tree to honor officers and Savery Hotel decorated it. 

The tree skirt displays the names and badge numbers of five Central Iowa officers who died this year. Susan Farrell and Carlos Puente Morales died in a crash involving a wrong way driver in March. They worked in Des Moines. West Des Moines Officer Shawn Miller died in a motorcycle crash in August. Des Moines Sergeant Sgt. Anthony "Tony" Beminio and Urbandale Officer Justin Martin died in ambush attacks in November.

The tree is at the Urbandale Police Department this week.
