“Officer Thomas M. Lindsey Memorial Highway” Designated on Route 5a and 5s

Luke Tubia, WIBX

Governor Andrew Cuomo today signed legislation to designate a section of State Route 5a and 5s in the City of Utica as the “Officer Thomas M. Lindsey Memorial Highway.” The section of highway to be named after Officer Lindsey runs through the City of Utica and directly in front of the Utica Police Station.

Officer Lindsey was a five year veteran of the Utica Police Department who received several Certificates of Commendation for his devotion to the City of Utica.

On April 12, 2007, he was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop.

The legislation was sponsored by Senator Joe Griffo and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.

“We commend the Governor for helping our community honor Tom Lindsey,” Senator Griffo said. “He made the ultimate sacrifice to help protect us and we want to make sure that his memory and life are ingrained into our history. Officer Lindsey will always be a hero to us.”

Assemblyman Brindisi added, “It is only appropriate that we honor Officer Lindsey for all he did for the citizens of Utica and Oneida County during his five years as a member of the Utica Police Department with this memorial designation. His courage and commitment to keeping our community safe will be remembered on a daily basis by the many people who regularly travel this road.”

Earlier today we spoke with Sgt. Greg Facciolo who served with Officer Lindsey and is a member of the Thomas Lindsey Foundation.
