Funeral procession for GPD Officer Kevin Jordan will honor his service

SHEILA A. MATHEWS :::

The Griffin Police Department is finalizing its intention to honor its slain brother, Officer Kevin Jordan.
The funeral will be conducted at 2:30 p.m. Monday, June 9, at Oak Hill Baptist Church located at 100 Lakeside Road, Williamson.
The procession will then depart the church and travel to Williamson Road. From there, it will turn left and continue to the Georgia 7 bypass. It will go north to Highway 16 and proceed east to Hill Street, where it will continue south to Airport Road. From Airport Road, the procession will turn right on Everee Inn Road, concluding at Westwood Gardens, which will be Officer Jordan’s final resting place.
Officer Jordan will be honored by Griffin Fire-Rescue, which will fly a flag draped over his procession. After Officer Jordan passes underneath the flag, he will be transferred from the hearse to a horse-drawn caisson.
Upon arriving at the cemetery, a closing prayer will be offered. It will be followed by a flag ceremony, a Masonic ceremony, a 21-gun salute, the playing of Taps and a missing man formation flyover.
The community is encouraged to show respect for Officer Jordan’s service along the procession route.
