Legislation to rename two U.S. Post Offices in Colorado in honor of officers killed in the line of duty was approved unanimously by the U.S. House of Representatives, according to a news release.
The legislation proposed by U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, proposes that the post office at 9609 S. University Blvd., Highlands Ranch, be named Deputy Sheriff Zackari Spurlock Parrish III Post Office, and that the office at 90 North 4th Avenue in Brighton become the Deputy Sheriff Heath McDonald Gumm Post Office.
“I'm honored the House unanimously approved my legislation to renamed these post offices in memory of deputies Parrish and Gumm,” Coffman said in a news release. “I'll work with my Senate colleagues to get this across the finish line to ensure their legacies of service and sacrifice will be remembered by our community for future generations.”
Parrish, of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, was killed Dec. 31, 2017, as he responded to a domestic disturbance call in Highlands Ranch. Gumm, of the Adams County Sheriff's Office, was killed Jan. 24, 2018, during a foot pursuit of a suspect in Thornton.
The bills now move on to the Senate for consideration.
