NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) - Nearly three months after Union County Officer Clint Frazier was killed on duty, the sheriff's department and local citizens come together to celebrate his life.
"I think he was very well thought of in Union County," Sheriff Jimmy Edwards said. "He was a good officer and a good friend."
March 18th marks three months since Frazier ended his watch. "We miss him," Edwards said. "He's loved here."
Frazier was killed in December while trying to pull over a drive near Myrtle, and not a day goes by that's he not forgotten.
"He was a family man," said Molly Bryan, Frazier's sister. "We were use to having him around a lot."
And while there is that gaping hole in the lives he touched, they're constantly reminded of his legacy.
The husband, father of three and a brother to so many, is a reminder of everyone that walks through the Union County Sheriff's Department of the sacrifice he made.
Now on the wall, hangs a shadow box.
"Being that he was killed in the line of duty, I thought that the thin blue line background, which is commonly used referred to in law enforcement, would make a nice back drop for it," said Deputy Baron Baker.
Other items in the shadow box include his badge number, a picture and a name plate.
"Things that folks will recognize and can remember him by," Baker explained.
A memorial 5K run will also be held in his honor.
"Clint has always been big into fitness," Bryan said. "It was his family first, then he loved to stay in shape."
The run begins at Trails And Treads in New Albany on April 19th, and it will loop through downtown New Albany.
All proceeds will be donated to Frazier's wife and children.
"We're looking forward to the day where we can memorialize him and remember all that he did, not only for the us but the community," Bryan said.
The 5K run is $20, which includes a t-shirt.
