Eagle Scouts Dedicate Flag Pole To Slain Officer

Posted: Updated:
 MOXEE, WA.- The Moxee community gathered Saturday to remember one of their own.

Trevor Nettleton, a Davis High School graduate and Las Vegas police officer was murdered in his home six years ago, but his family and friends can't soon forget his memory.

Trevor Nettleton died protecting his wife and two young children, after an intruder broke into their Las Vegas home attempting to rob them.

Trevor lost his life that day, but the community he grew up in is remembering his memory.

Eagle Scout Kyle Riley was the young mind behind the project idea.

Riley and his scout troupe noticed the Moxee police station didn't have a flagpole.

That's when they jumped into action, deciding to dedicate the flag pole after Trevor Nettleton.

Trevor's father was at the dedication and told KNDO the community's support has been astounding.

“I love the community and I love the city and with Trevor's name being permanently attached to a flag pole, is well beyond what I ever dreamed of,” Nettleton said.

The Eagle Scout troupe presented the flag to the crowd, before raising it up on the flagpole.

It was an emotional ceremony and Nettleton said it brought back many memories of his son.

“It brings back a lot of good memories and horrifying memories, but you have to take the good with the bad and this is the good one,” Nettleton said.

    KENNEWICK: Good news for all of you bargain shoppers out there, Goodwill is opening a brand new store in Kennewick sometime next year. Thanks to a 3.1 million dollar loan and lots of planning, a very large patch of dirt will be home to a 20,000 square foot Goodwill; half warehouse and processing, half retail. The Kennewick store will be closing, however. You can still say, out with your old couches, TV's and clothing, and *into someone else's hands, just at a different location. ...More >>
