Students from Western Piedmont's police academy stand by I-40 as a procession for fallen U.S. Forestry Service officer Jason Crisp moves through Morganton. Steve Warren, the Director of law enforcement training for the academy, trained Crisp in 1996. 

The procession escorting fallen U.S. Forest Service Officer Jason Crisp traveled through Catawba and Burke counties just before 2 p.m. Thursday on its way to Westmoreland Funeral Home in Marion from Winston-Salem.
