Fallen Huntsville Police Officer Recognized for Valor

 October 18, 2005 (Huntsville, Alabama) Alabama Attorney General Troy King will honor law enforcement in Birmingham on Tuesday during a Summit focusing on fighting cyber crime.  Among the Officers being honored, fallen Huntsville Police Officer Daniel Golden.
