YORK COUNTY, S.C. — Nearly one year has passed since the death of York County Detective Mike Doty.
Now, there is a new memorial honoring his sacrifice.
Friday night, Eagle Scout Jared Collins unveiled a memorial he created.
It stands outside the Law Enforcement Training Center in York.
A suspect shot and killed Doty in January.
The Sheriff's Office said Collins shared his idea to honor Detective Doty not long after the tragedy.
"I wanted something where it could impact somebody. It's kind of like a monument in a way. It's meaningful. It has meaning behind it. It has a story behind it," Collins said.
