A stretch of state highway in northeastern Kansas now bears the name of an Atchison police officer who was killed on duty in 2011.
A stretch of Kansas 7 from Atchison to Troy was renamed Tuesday as Sgt. David Enzbrenner Memorial Highway.
He was a 24-year veteran of the city’s police force until he was killed while delivering a nuisance notice.
Atchison police Lt. Timothy Stout called Tuesday’s event “a special day” that the department and Atchison residents have been awaiting for some time.
