TACOMA, Wash. (AP) – The memorial service has been scheduled for a western Washington sheriff’s deputy who died in a car crash while rushing to assist other officers last week.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputy Cooper Dyson will be honored with a public service at 1 p.m. Monday at the Tacoma Dome.

The street procession will begin at 11 a.m. at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The 25-year-old deputy died December 21 after his patrol car crashed into a commercial building while he was on his way to back up two fellow officers already dispatched to a house in Parkland for an urgent domestic violence call.

On Monday, Spokane Mayor David Condon ordered that all city flags be lowered to half-staff in honor of Deputy Dyson. Governor Jay Inslee ordered the same directive for state and U.S. flags at all state agencies.
