HAMILTON (FOX19) -- The Hamilton Police Department received a $1,500 check Wednesday to be used for drug and alcohol training for officers.
The money comes from the Daniel Monnin Memorial Scholarship Fund set up at the Hamilton Community Foundation.
Steve and Susan Monnin created the Daniel Monnin Memorial Scholarship Fund through the Hamilton Community Foundation upon their son's death on Aug. 20, 2010 in a diving accident.
Daniel, 21, a Hamilton native, was pursuing his dream of becoming a police officer. He earned an associate’s degree in criminal justice from Columbus State Community College. He was also working as a corrections officer at West Central Community Correctional Facility in Marysville, Ohio. He planned on attending Ohio University to obtain his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
