Funeral service held for Ky. police officer killed in the line of duty
LONDON, Ky. (WKYT) - Final services for a southern Kentucky police officer killed in the line of duty were held Friday.
London Officer Logan Medlock, 26, was killed when police say a drunk driver crashed into his cruiser.
Medlock’s funeral service were held at Corinth Baptist Church. First responders from all over are in Laurel County to attend. People began arriving hours before the service:
- Benefit fund established for LPD Officer Logan Medlock
- Florida teen runs a mile in memory of London police officer
Corinth Baptist Church seats just under 1,000 and every seat was filled. Two sections were filled with family and friends the rest by officers.
Supporting Heroes, the group that planned and coordinated the service, said it is very important that the family and the local enforcement community see Logan Medlock’s life being honored and celebrated.
Medlock served as a police officer for several years, but he was also a volunteer firefighter and had been a corrections officer. He was described as a man of integrity, righteousness and was the best our nation has to offer.
“Logan just didn’t have the job of peace officer. It was his identity,” said Rober Akers, who officiated the service.
Following the service at church, a procession traveled from the church, through downtown, to Locust Grove Cemetery in Keavy. Police wanted as many people to line the streets to view the process as possible.
Supporting Heroes says Medlock’s graveside service at the cemetery also included a flyover.
