The Thin Blue Line comes to Dunwoody to honor one of their own.
The funeral for Chattahoochee Hills Officer Lt. Mike Vogt will be held this Saturday, February 20, 2010 beginning at Noon at the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, 4400 N. Peachtree Rd. Dunwoody, Ga. 30338.
Officers from surrounding jurisdictions will be attending the funeral to honor their fallen comrade and as many as 1,000 cars are expected along the route to Arlington Memorial Park, 201 Mt. Vernon Highway NW in Sandy Springs thus forming the thin blue line.
I am expecting the intersections of I-285 / Shallowford Road and I-285 / Chamblee Dunwoody Road to be closed except to the funeral procession after the service. In honor Lt. Mike Vogt, I asking motorists and the traveling public to be vigilant and patient in this area on Saturday as there will be numerous officers on foot and in patrol cars.
