Officer Frank C. Denzinger End of Watch: Monday, June 18, 2007
Officer Frank Denzinger was shot and killed when he and another officer responded to a domestic disturbance call.
The officers responded to a report of a confrontation between a mother and her son in the 6000 block of Rachel Court in Georgetown at about 1830 hours. Upon their arrival, while they were conversing with the mother in the driveway, her 15-year-old son ambushed both officers from an upstairs window of the residence.
The suspect, who was using a high-powered, World War II relic M-1 Garand rifle, struck Officer Denzinger with a second round between the side panels of his bullet-resistant vest, before the other officer was able to return fire into the home.
Officer Denzinger was transported to University Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, where he succumbed to his wounds. The other officer was seriously wounded, but survived.
The suspect was found six hours later inside the residence having committed suicide.
Officer Denzinger had served with the Floyd County Sheriff's Office for four years. He is survived by his wife, 2-year-old daughter, parents and two sisters.
End of Watch: Monday, June 12, 2004
Floyd County Police K9 Kimbo gave the ultimate sacrifice on June 12, 2004 when he was shot and killed. Kimbo had been missing from his kennel for days following a string of intense storms that contained several tornados.
Kimbo was apparently frightened by the storms and escaped from his kennel. Kimbo's partner, Off. Scott Sams (Floyd County Police Department) and many other officers searched for Kimbo for several days however it was later found that a neighbor had shot Kimbo after being startled by him. Kimbo's efforts in reducing crime in Floyd County were unmatched.
