The visitation for a Warren County Sheriff's Deputy killed in the line of duty is Friday.

Sgt. Brian Dulle was putting out stop sticks on U.S. 42 Tuesday morning when he was hit and killed by a suspect fleeing police.

Dulle was also honored at a police memorial service Friday morning. The event was planned prior to Dulle's death, but his name has been added to the memorial for fallen police officers in Warren County. Dulle is the first Warren County Sheriff's Deputy to die in the line of duty.

"These individuals are gone from the physical world but in our hearts and minds they live forever," says Lt. Johnny Miller, FOP Chaplain for Warren County.

Many from the community attended the memorial to not only pay respect to Dulle but every fallen brother and sister who has served to protect in Warren County.

The visitation is from 5-9 p.m. at Chris Church in Mason. The public is invited to attend.

His funeral service is Saturday at noon at the same church, followed by a procession and burial.

The procession is expected to leave the church between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. and travel north on Mason-Montgomery Road, then right on Main Street/U.S. 42 to Lebanon.

Once the procession begins, northbound Mason-Montgomery will be closed from Cedar Village Drive to Main Street. Southbound Mason-Montgomery will be closed at Western Row Road. No traffic will be permitted to cross Mason-Montgomery Road or Main Street/U.S. 42 while the procession is going by.

It could take as long as an hour to move the entire procession through the city. Officers will be at various locations to assist with traffic.

Police arrested Marcus Isreal and charged him with involuntary manslaughter and failure to comply with police. The Warren County Prosecutor is holding a press conference at 2:30 p.m. to talk about the case. The case was scheduled to go to the grand jury on Friday.
