On Wednesday, people all across took a moment of silence to honor and remember the life of a Terre Haute Police officer, whose life was taken too soon.
Wednesday, July 11, marked seven years since the death of Officer Brent Long; he was killed in the line of duty while he and his K9 partner Shadow were serving a warrant at a residence in Terre Haute.
A statue was made in honor of Officer Long and it currently stands proudly outside of THPD Headquarters.
He is survived by his wife and two children.
All of use at WTWO would like to pay our respects to Officer Long, and say thank you to Officer Long’s family, as well as the family of fallen Officer Rob Pitts.
And to all of the members of local law enforcement, we thank you for your bravery and sacrifice in keeping the community a safe place to live.
