LAKELAND, Fla. — Lakeland Police Officer Paul Dunn is being laid to rest Wednesday, after losing his life in a motorcycle crash.
The Marine veteran was killed while on his way to work on January 9. Investigators say he lost control of his police motorcycle, hit a raised median and crashed. He was 50 years old.
Authorities are still working to determine if the crash was an accident or if someone tried to hit Dunn.
A viewing will be held at the First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland from 11 a.m. to noon on Wednesday.
The family is asking those who come to wear a military uniform or orange and blue to honor Dunn's time in the military and his love for Gator football.
A service will be held at noon and will be followed with police honors.
A funeral procession will take Dunn to his final resting place at the Lakeland Memorial Gardens Funeral home, there the family will hold a private service.
Dunn served in the Lakeland Police Department since 2013. He worked in law enforcement for 20 years.
