Milford police officer honored 30 years after death

MILFORD -

A Milford police officer killed in the line of duty 30 years ago was honored Thursday by both officers and recruits. 

Officer Daniel Wasson was killed on April 12 while conducting a traffic stop when he was only 25-years-old.

Danny Wasson's Badge No. 60 was retired and locker No. 43 remains empty to this day.

The police department says it serves as a reminder that their fellow officer made the ultimate sacrifice.
