SandBoxBlogs: Coloradoan "Governor approves Larimer deputy's license plate honoring fallen officers"

"A license plate conceived by a Larimer County Sheriff's deputy soon will be seen on the streets after Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a bill approving it.

The Colorado Law Enforcement Fallen Heroes plate was the idea of deputy Basil Marciniak in response to the death of Weld County Sheriff's deputy Sam Brownlee, who was fatally shot by a suspect in 2010.

"This is an opportunity for citizens to recognize and remember the ultimate sacrifices many law enforcement officers have made and the risks officers face on a daily basis," Larimer Sheriff Justin Smith said in a news release Friday.

The plate, which features three eagles and a seal that says "In memory of the fallen," will be available to people who make a $50 donation to Colorado Concerns of Police Survivors. The COPS organization assists families of law-enforcement officers who've been killed in the line of duty.

"Unapologetically pursuing and tracking patterns within the news others make since 2010."
