Plaque dedicated to slain Seattle police officer

Seattle police officers dedicated a plaque Monday to Officer Timothy Brenton, who was killed two years ago in the line of duty.

The plaque is on the Seattle Police Department Memorial Wall in the main lobby of Seattle Police Department Headquarters at 610 5th Avenue.

On Oct. 31, 2009, Officer Brenton and Officer Britt Sweeney were parked at the corner of 29th Avenue and East Yesler Way when a car pulled up alongside their cruiser and the driver opened fire with an assault rifle. Brenton was killed and Sweeney was wounded.

“While this plaque is dedicated to Officer Brenton,” said police spokesman Mark Jamieson, “it is also a time to honor all of the Seattle Police Officers who have fallen in the line of duty.”
