LOUISVILLE, KY (FOX19) - A Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police presented a check to the wife of the late Bradstown police officer who was killed in the line of duty last May.

Bardstown K-9 officer and Batavia native, Jason Ellis was shot and killed in May and officers strived to ensure that Ellis' family would be taken care of.

The $40,000 check was presented before the Bats' game at Slugger Field by the River City FOP.

Although Ellis was not an officer stationed in their jurisdiction, the organization says that they are happy to help their law enforcement family in any way that they can.
