Honoring fallen officers


Local law enforcement agencies hosted the In the Line of Duty ceremony on the Union County Courthouse lawn Thursday evening. Pictured is Richwood Police Chief Monte Asher speaking to the assembled crowd. Every year, the county’s law enforcement agencies convene to honor officers killed in the line of duty. Honored during the ceremony were sheriff Forest S. Hager, who died in 1927; Sgt. Roger Beekman, who died in 1979; and sheriff Harry Wolfe, who died in 1982.
