Officer Lemoine does have his own memorial; in the department's lobby is a painting done in his honor. He's shown riding his police motorcycle and it was while riding his motorcycle that he made the ultimate sacrifice. Also, at the present time his memory is prominently on display at the Woonsocket Historical Society as part of the Police Relief's 100th Anniversary Display. RIP, brother.
