Beshear to honor fallen police officers next week

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear is set to honor fallen
law enforcement officers in Kentucky.
That includes Alexandria police officer James Sticklen and FBI
special agent Timothy Briggs, both of whom died last year.
Beshear is set to speak at a memorial ceremony Tuesday at 11
a.m. EDT at the Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial on the campus of
Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond.
The ceremony also will honor 14 Kentucky officers who died in
the line of duty between 1869 and 1964 but whose names were not
added to the national memorial until recently.
Only officers whose names are on the National Law Enforcement
Memorial can be added to the Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial.
