Local and state law enforcement officers prepare to lay colleague to rest

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Wednesday, as his call number is radioed into dispatch for the last, Corporal D. Robert Harvey's tour of duty will officially end. It is known as "the final call."

It will be just one of the many honorable traditions seen Wednesday. Hundreds of officers from not only this area, but also from across the state and the nation will show their respects for Deputy Harvey, who was just 29-years-old.

A motorcade will escort Harvey's family from their home to First Baptist Church for the funeral that starts at 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

The sheriff's office tactical team, which Harvey was a member of, will serve as pallbearers. They will accompany the casket into the church. Just before the final call, Harvey's helmet will be placed on top of the casket. His boots and riffle will be nearby.

The funeral will be followed by a procession of local, area and state law enforcement. It will be lead from above by Aero Care.

The procession is expected to go west on Broadway to University, then south on University to 19th Street and west on 19th to Resthaven Memorial Park for graveside services.

The services will include the flag folding and presentation and a 21-gun salute.

The Austin Police Department's bagpipe and drum core will play taps and amazing grace.

And the Lubbock Police Department will honor Corporal Harvey with the riderless horse.

A memorial fund has also been set up in Harvey's name to help his wife and two young boys. You may donate at any branch of City Bank.

Corporal D. Robert Harvey served with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office since October of 2001. Sheriff David Gutierrez calls Harvey a friend and devoted public servant, and says that he made the ultimate sacrifice for his community.
