GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - New signs along Interstate 15 have been installed to honor a fallen Cascade County deputy.

A ceremony was held Wednesday at the sheriff’s office to unveil the signs and commemorate the death of Joseph J. Dunn, who was killed in the line of duty on Aug. 14, 2014.

The signs have been put up on the highway in both directions between the Ulm and Gore Hill interchanges. The green highway signs read: “Deputy Sheriff Joseph J. Dunn Memorial Highway” and include Dunn’s badge number.

Dunn died after being struck by a fleeing suspect involved in a chase with deputies and Montana Highway Patrol troopers.
