Visitation Today, Funeral Tomorrow For Slain Officer

WEST SAINT PAUL — Visitation for slain Police Officer Scott Patrick is this afternoon at Saint Stephen's Lutheran Church in West Saint Paul and funeral services are tomorrow morning also at the church.  Thousands of officers from around the state and nation are expected to join family and friends to pay their last respects.

After Officer Patrick's funeral, two processions will make their way seven-point-eight miles through West Saint Paul and Mendota Heights to Acacia Park Cemetery.  The first procession will include hundreds of law enforcement and public safety personnel.

The second, about a half-hour later, will consist of Mendota Heights officers and staff, Officer Patrick's family and the Officer, who will arrive at the cemetery in a horse-drawn caisson.  Officials are encouraging the public to show their support along the procession route.
