Johnson City, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Johnson City Police Officer David Smith was killed in the line of duty on March 31. Only a month later, fellow officers work to make sure his memory stays constant.

Through a silent auction, officers will raise money by offering up sports memorabilia. There will be old photographs and sporting event tickets. Also, the Binghamton Senators created a custom jersey in honor of Smith.

Barbells of Binghamton is also auctioning off a home gym. If won, the business has also offered to deliver and set up the equipment.

"There's a huge void at the police department still. It's only been a month. He was everybody's friend, co- worker. Everyone misses him. We're still rebuilding and we'll need some time to get there," said fellow Johnson City Police Officer Jody Kennedy.

Any of the Officer Smith memorabilia can be purchased at the Johnson City Police Department.
