Information on Funeral and Procession for Deputy Micah Flick

February 9, 2018

Out of respect for the grieving family, fellow law enforcement officers and friends we are unable to accommodate requests for interviews on Saturday morning prior to 11:30 AM.  El Paso County Sheriff, Bill Elder will provide a live statement to the media prior to the service.  This statement will be on site at the church.  This will occur at approximately 11:45 AM MST at a location to be determined.  Other interviews will be facilitated after that time as well.

The service inside and outside of New Life Church will be a pool only event.  Local NBC affiliate KOAA has been selected as the pool for television coverage.  Still pool photography will be provided by The Gazette.
