State Senator Bill Beagle hosted a ceremony on Sunday, August 17 dedicating a portion of State Route 41 in memory of Sheriff’s Sgt. Robert “Bobby” Elliott. Sgt. Elliott, who spent nearly 15 years with the Miami County Sheriff’s Department, lost his life on February 25, 1987 in the line of duty.

“Sgt. Elliott was a truly heroic individual, and it’s a privilege to join with his friends and family as we dedicate this portion of highway in his honor,” said Beagle, who sponsored the legislation for the memorial highway.

The program dedicated State Route 41 between Troy and Covington as the “Sheriff’s Sgt. Robert ‘Bobby’ Elliott Memorial Highway.” This portion of highway was near the family’s home and where they attended church.

Sgt. Marc Basye of the Tipp City Police Department added, “I was grateful to be part of honoring Bobby alongside his family and Senator Beagle as Senate Bill 226 passed through the legislature.  This is going to be a proud day for the Elliott family and Miami County, and I am glad to have helped Senator Beagle and Bobby's family bring this project to fruition.”
