Area law enforcement will gather today to dedicate a memorial to the first Warren County Sheriff’s deputy killed in the line of duty.
The 11 a.m. ceremony at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office marks the second anniversary of the death of Sgt. Brian Dulle. The 36-year-old married father of three small children was killed in 2011 when he was struck by a fleeing vehicle as he threw down stop sticks at Utica Road and U.S. 42 in Turtlecreek Township.
The driver, Marcus Isreal, 22, of Middletown, was found guilty later that year of eight charges including murder and was sentenced to 25 1/2 years to life in prison.
The Dulle memorial will be located alongside other memorials in front of the sheriff’s office at 550 Justice Dr., Lebanon.
State Rep. Ron Maag will dedicate the area of U.S. 42 between Lebanon and Waynesville – the area in which Dulle was killed – the “Sergeant Brian Dulle Memorial Highway.”
The ceremony is open to the public.
