A year has passed since Ty Lenehan became the first officer to die in the line of duty in the Elk Grove Police Department's 16-year history. Motorists will soon see his name whenever they drive on Highway 99 in Elk Grove.On Jan. 17, the Elk Grove police unveiled a memorial sign for Lenehan that will be posted next to the highway later this month. The state legislature approved the dedication of Highway 99 between Sheldon and Grant Line roads in his memory. That effort was led by Sacramento County Sheriff Jim Cooper when he was the 9th District Assembly Member.
