DOTHAN:    Honor our "Honored Fallen" we honor Sergeant Shelby Owens, Unit Number MX4.

End of Watch: November 9th, 1970

Sergeant Owens began his employment with the Dothan Police Department as a Traffic Patrolman on April 16th, 1951 and was promoted to Sergeant on February 11th, 1970.

On November 9th, 1970, While on duty, Sergeant Owens was killed after being involved in a motor vehicle collision while operating his department issued motorcycle.

The accident was at Zenith and Ross Clark Circle.

I very much remember Sgt. Owens. He worked the school crossing guard post most days at Cherokee Avenue. He also worked at Bob-A-Lou Skating rink at nights and weekends.

Sgt. Owens has a son, Ray who retired from Dothan Police Department and a grandson, Scott, who is still with Dothan Police Department.

I can say, I knew Sgt. Shelby Owens and can say he was a friend to many children in this community.
