A California Highway Patrol officer who died on duty in Del Norte County will be among 200 of the agency's officers that will be honored today during a memorial at the CHP Academy.

Officer Ernest R. Felio was killed Sept. 7, 1980, during a routine traffic stop. He was 49 at the time, and had been assigned to duty in Del Norte County for 17 of the 18 years he served with CHP.

This year, special tribute will be paid this year to Oakland area Officer Brent W. Clearman, who was killed in August 2006 when he was struck by a vehicle while investigating a collision.
