WEBSTER PARISH, La. (KSLA) - The life and legacy of a Webster Parish sheriff’s deputy and part-time Cotton Valley police officer will be honored Wednesday morning.

Law enforcement from throughout northwest Louisiana will converge in downtown Minden at 9 a.m. on Sept. 22 for a “Sea of Blue” processional to remember Trey Copeland.

The procession will travel from the Minden courthouse to City on a Hill Church for a 10 a.m. memorial service.

Copeland, who served the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office for 15 years, was working as a part-time Cotton Valley police officer when he died from unknown medical reasons after his involvement in a high-speed chase on Aug. 31.

He is the second law enforcement officer from Webster Parish to die in the line of duty in two months. Billy Collins Jr., who also was a Webster sheriff’s deputy, was working part time for the Doyline Police Department when his life was taken while responding to a call in early July.
