Fallen Officers Honored, Highway Renamed

Fallen Officers Honored, Highway Renamed

Barron County is renaming County Highway SS to remember two fallen officers.

Barron County leaders voted to rename the highway for Chetek Officer Emily Breidenbach and Cameron Officer Hunter Scheel. They were gunned down on the highway back in April. Investigators say a wanted man with a hatred for the police pulled the trigger. The name change is immediate, though the county says it will take about two weeks for the state and others to update the maps. The highway will now be known as the Officer Emily Breidenbach and Officer Hunter Scheel Memorial Highway.
