Three SW Indiana bridges being named after local troopers who died in the line of duty

Each day officers put their lives on the line, and each year Indiana State Police honor the sacrifice of those who have died with a memorial service.

The tradition continues Wednesday morning at the ISP post with a special dedication ceremony.

The service begins with a traditional roll call of ISP units killed in the line of duty, after each name called, troopers fire off a single shot.

This year three highway bridges in Southwestern Indiana are being named after local officers.

That includes two I-69 bridges over the Patoka River at the Gibson/Pike county line.

One will be named after Trooper William J. Trees and the other after Oakland City Officer Michael Deno.

Both officers were killed in Gibson County. 

The I-64 Big Bayou River Bridge will be named after Sergeant John Hatfull who was killed in Posey County.
