Englewood Police officer Jeremy Bitner laid to rest
Hundreds of mourners paid tribute to fallen Englewood Police officer Jeremy Bitner on Friday, first attending a funeral at First Church of Nazarene, followed by a procession to Fort Logan Cemetery where Bitner was laid to rest.
Bitner, 39, was hit by a suspected drunk driver as he was issuing a ticket to another driver just after midnight on Memorial Day.
Among those who spoke at the memorial service were Bitner’s wife, Tina, and Englewood Police Chief John Collins who posthumously awarded Bitner with the rank of “detective.”
Conner Donohue, 20, is being held on $100,000 bond on suspicion of vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, vehicular assault and leaving the scene of an accident.
