Law enforcement officers who pulled an Upstate trooper from a fiery crash will be honored during Monday's City Council meeting.
Four officers will be recognized Monday for their roles in assisting an Upstate member of the S.C. Highway Patrol, after a fiery crash in Easley.
The S.C. Highway Patrol and the S.C. Department of Public Safety will honor officers from Easley Police Department and Pickens County Sheriff’s Office who helped pull Trooper K.K. Bratcher from his burning vehicle on March 12, 2012, after a line-of-duty crash in Anderson.
The Highway Patrol will present these officers with a special award, commending them for their bravery and courage, according to a release from the agency.
Bratcher's family is expected to be in attendance and read a letter from the trooper, who is still recovering from the crash.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Easley Law Enforcement Center.
