SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah, Sept. 15, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The Honor Flag will make a stop Monday at the South Salt Lake Police Department to recognize the sacrifice of Officer David Romrell, who was killed in the line of duty on Nov. 24, 2018.

The Honor Flag, a traveling tribute, will arrive at approximately 11:45 a.m. at the South Salt Lake Police Department, 2835 S. Main St., for a short ceremony, open to the public.
