Ga. lawmakers honor fallen police officers

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Three fallen Georgia police officers were recognized for their sacrifice at the Capitol on Monday.

The state House of Representatives resolution honored Atlanta Police Officers Richard Halford and Shawn Smiley, who lost their lives in a helicopter crash while looking for a missing 9-year-old child in November.

Clayton County Police Officer Shawn Callahan was honored. He was shot and killed while trying to arrest a suspect during a domestic dispute call. Callahan was on the job four months when he died.

Colleagues waiting for the tribute from the gallery above the floor of the Georgia House of Representatives said they are touched by the men's sacrifice, and are happy they are being recognized.
