ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – A special salute ahead of Memorial Day.
The Roanoke County Sheriff’s Office is honoring our veterans through a new patrol car.
They just debuted a military-themed Tahoe to show their appreciation for service members.
It’s wrapped in camouflage with an American flag on top and was designed with help from a local company to show support while also honoring veterans and active reserve members on the force.
“It’s a conversation starter we get to talk about our experiences and how the military played in our lives and kinda led to a career in law enforcement,” Captain Chad Beheler said. “I’m a veteran myself and to work for a department that greatly appreciates what the men and women do for the armed forces means a lot to me.”
The rear glass panel also has a personal tie with a silhouette of the captain’s platoon prior to their Iraq deployment in 2005.
