Anderson SC – Third District Congressman Jeff Duncan conducted a flag presentation ceremony Monday in Anderson to honor K9 officer Roscoe who died in the line of duty.
Congressman Duncan presented the flag to Anderson County Sheriff Chad McBride and Master Deputy Matt Davis.
The flag was flown over the US Capitol at Duncan’s request on August 13.
Roscoe was shot on August 11th while tracking fleeing suspects near the Lowes on Clemson Boulevard and later died of his injuries.
In his comments, the Laurens Republican representative noted that Roscoe had apprehended two suspects on his very first day of duty.
Duncan said he has great respect for all law enforcement officers, including those who wear a collar.
