YORK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Those who worked closely with a recently-fallen officer in Newport News were able to attend her memorial after a nearby locality stepped in to help.

In a Facebook post Monday night, Newport News Emergency Communications thanked York County dispatchers for working their shifts Monday night so they could attend Officer Katie Thyne’s memorial service in Hampton.

The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office replied saying it was just ‘one family backing up another in their time of need.’

In response to the post, several commenters thanked York County Emergency Communications for stepping in to help.
