State officials say they are looking at erecting a permanent memorial to Mandeville Police Captain Vincent Liberto.
Mandeville Police Chief Gerald Sticker spoke yesterday after a makeshift memorial to Liberto near the intersection of Highways 190 and 122 was removed due to disrepair.
Liberto, a former Marine and 25-year veteran of the MPD, was killed in the line of duty during a traffic stop in September 2019.
State transportation authorities say a permanent memorial featuring an American flag and a renamed interchange in his honor is being planned.
