This afternoon there will be a public dedication of a memorial to Officer Timothy Brenton at 29th Avenue and East Yesler Way. This is the location where Officer Brenton was killed exactly one year ago today.
The idea for the permanant memorial at this location was formulated by the Leschi community as a way to commemorate the life and honor the sacrifice of Officer Brenton.
The public dedication ceremony will begin at 3:00 p.m. at that location.
Some of the streets immediately surrounding the dedication will be closed, but there will be limited parking at the Leschi Elementary School parking lots at 31st Avenue and East Yesler Way.
The dedication is expected to last approximately 30 minutes, with several speakers scheduled to make remarks.
The Seattle Police Department is honored and extremely humbled by the outpouring of support from the Leschi community.
