An OPD motorcade escorted the body of Officer Kevin Valencia from the District 5 Medical Examiner’s Office to the Baldwin-Fairchild Funeral Home in Orlando.

Valencia is expected to be buried in the nearby Chapel Hill Cemetery.

His funeral will take place on March 24th at the First Baptist Church in Orlando and will be broadcast live to the public on Facebook and Twitter at 11 a.m.

Yesterday, the OPD held a wreath-laying ceremony at their headquarters to honor the seriously injured officer who responded to a call on domestic violence in 2018.

The Sagittarius killed four children between the ages of one and twelve before killing himself.

For its bravery, Valencia received the Purple Heart Award. He is survived by his wife Meghan and their sons Kaleb and Kolton.

Instead of flowers, the family is asking for donations to the Orlando Police Heroes Foundation.

You can pay your respects to Officer Kevin Valencia in front of the OPD Headquarters, where a wreath will be displayed in front of the police vehicle in his honor.
