HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A ceremony was held Friday to unveil a plaque honoring former Hendersonville Police Officer Spencer Bristol.

The ceremony was filled with friends, family and community members who cared about Officer Bristol.

He was died when he was hit by a car while chasing after a suspect on I-65 near Goodlettsville in December of last year.

The plaque was dedicated in his honor and was paid for by a young girl who worked a summer job to pay for it. His plaque was the tenth name added outside the Sumner County Sheriff's Department as part of its fallen officers memorial wall.
