Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (March 4, 2013) – Today, the Indiana Senate unanimously approved three resolutions by State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville) to memorialize fallen Southwest Indiana law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.

 

Senate Concurrent Resolutions 10, 11 and 12 urge the Indiana Department of Transportation to rename sections of I-69 and Interstate-64 for Officer Michael E. Deno, Trooper William J. "Joe" Trees and Sgt. John E. Hatfull, respectively.

 

“I’m extremely pleased the full Senate supports me in asking the Department of Transportation to honor these Southwest Indiana officers,” Tomes said. “This is a simple, yet important, way for us to acknowledge the sacrifices they made to keep Indiana safe.”

 

Family members of Officer Deno, Trooper Trees and Sgt. Hatfull attended the Senate hearing on the resolutions.

 

“These officers epitomized all of the best qualities we see in public servants,” Tomes said. “Our state is a better place because of people like them.”

 

The resolutions will now move to the House of Representatives for consideration.
