Public Invited to Line the Funeral Procession Route for Lubbock County Sheriff Sgt. Josh Bartlett
Friday, funeral services will be held to honor the life of Lubbock County Sheriff's Office SWAT Command Sgt. Josh Bartlett. Earlier this month, Sgt. Bartlett was killed in the line of duty by a suspect while assisting Levelland Police.
Lubbock Police have been assisting the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office this week with the arrangements, and crowd control, for both the memorial service and the graveside service.
Friday morning at 10am the funeral service will be held at Trinity Church, located at 7002 Canton Avenue. Lubbock Police are asking the public to watch the funeral service via online webstream, so as many law enforcement officers as possible can attend the funeral in person.
Trinity Church will broadcast Sgt. Bartlett's funeral on its Facebook page, and it will also be streamed on the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office Facebook page too.
Once the service at Trinity Church concludes, the funeral procession will leave Trinity Church using the following route (shown in graphic below): start at Trinity Church, leaving west on South Loop 289 access road. Right turn, northbound on Indiana Avenue from the South Loop to 19th Street. Then, at 19th Street the procession will turn left, westbound on 19th Street to Frankford Avenue. Finally, the funeral procession will turn right on Frankford concluding at Resthaven Cemetery.
Lubbock Police will be closing the route of the funeral procession to traffic at some point after 10am on Friday morning. While citizens are encouraged to line the route of the funeral procession, they won't be allowed to drive along the route until the procession has concluded.
