Law enforcement across Green Country are coming together to honor a Tulsa Police officer who was killed in the line of duty more than 20 years ago.

One Tulsa alleyway looks very different than it did when Officer Dick Hobson was shot and killed there by an armed robbery suspect in 1996.

Now, a plaque will remind people of the sacrifice he made.

Dozens of loved ones and officers and deputies from several departments were there for Monday’s ceremony.

Hobson was the last TPD officer to die in the line of duty.

His daughter, Jericho Hobson, said Monday was the first time she's ever seen the spot where her father died.

Jericho said she remembers that day like it was yesterday and she's glad to know Tulsa will never forget her dad.

"In the day in age where not every officer is a great officer, it's great to see them coming together and recognizing one who was," said Jericho.
