Thousands of civilians and police from around the country are expected at the Hulman Center in Terre Haute today for the funeral of Officer Brent Long. Long was killed a week ago while assisting with servicing a warrant. State Police Sergeant Joe Watts said the Terre Haute Police Department will be closed through Tuesday morning so the department can grieve. They‘re getting assistance from a number of agencies, including State Police, the Vigo County Sheriff’s Office, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, Indiana State University Police, and the West Terre Haute Police Department. Watts said the motorcade will make two stops in Terre Haute to salute Officer Long. Services begin at 11 this morning. Long is survived by a wife and two children. His k9 “shadow” was wounded in the shooting and is being rehabbed and will then return to the family. Burial will follow the services at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Terre Haute.
