Dayton Police: More Details On Detective Del Rio Memorial Service, Procession

Crowds are likely at the upcoming memorial service for slain Dayton Police Detective Jorge Del Rio Tuesday. The 55-year-old law enforcement veteran died in the line of duty last week from shooting-related injuries he sustained during a DEA Task Force operation.

The service is set for Tuesday, November 12, 2019, from 12:00-2:00 p.m. at the University of Dayton Arena. Parking will be available beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Gate D parking lot. Doors open at 10 a.m. for the service.

Dayton Police Department officials urge anyone planning to attend to allow for extra travel time both into and out of the venue. Attendees will be required to pass through security checkpoints at the arena. 

After the service, a procession of law enforcement vehicles will escort Del Rio’s body to the funeral home off of Far Hills Ave.
