(LEX 18) — "In this season of giving, we remember those who gave it all."

Kentucky State Police released a powerful Christmas ad that reminds Kentuckians of those heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty.

The ad, filmed in KSP headquarters, shows Santa stopping in front of tree and acknowledging the photos of the fallen state troopers that line the wall. As "Silent Night" plays softly in the background, Santa removes his red cap in a moment of remembrance.
