A statue dedication will be held this Thursday to honor fallen Terre Haute Police Officer Brent Long and his K-9 companion Shadow.
The ceremony will be held at the THPD headquarters on Wabash Avenue at 11 AM.
The ceremony will honor all fallen officers from the THPD.
Long was killed and Shadow was seriously wounded while serving a warrant in July 2011.
The statue of Long and Shadow that was designed by local artist Bill Wolfe will be the centerpiece of the future officer memorial that will recognize each fallen THPD officer.
The memorial is to be finalized with the completion of a new THPD headquarters nearby.
