One of the most touching moments of the Officer Perry Renn’s funeral process was outside of the North District Headquarters where Renn served. The patriot guard, law enforcement and onlookers lined the street as the casket made it’s way in from of Renn’s squad car, his unit referred to as Adam 572.
During a moment of pause a long time IMPD dispatcher made the final 1042 call meaning Officer Renn was officially marked out of service and gone home for good.
Members of the community brought signs, lawn chairs and their own flags to show the Renn family they have their support.
“Its the least you could do. Nobody knows what the family is battling with. I figure if coming out with a flag and waving and paying my respects does them even a bit of good then I’m gonna do it,” said Anderson resident Mark Schatzer.
Even after the procession passed people continued to stop by and bring flowers to place on Officer Renn’s car. His unit will remain outside of North District until Monday morning.
