A Dickson County Sheriff’s deputy was honored Monday after being killed in the line of duty last year.
As the one year anniversary of the death of Dickson Sheriff’s deputy Sgt. Daniel Baker draws near, he was honored nationally in Washington D.C. Monday.
The 10-year veteran’s name was read at a ceremony in D.C. His name was also one of 158 new names etched on the law enforcement wall.
Baker’s wife, Lisa, and daughter, Meredith, along with Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe and DA Ray Crouch were all on hand.
“I don’t know what words to use. You know it’s just moving, it’s emotional and just to know that he’s being recognized, that his life was taken. He was murdered in the line of duty and that people will remember him years from now,” said Dickson County Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe.
Events are to continue throughout the week.
Sgt. Baker died in the line of duty on May 30, 2018.
