DETROIT (AP) -

A memorial marker is being installed to honor a Detroit police officer who was killed in a hit-and-run crash.

The marker is being put in place Friday atop a street sign in memory of Myron Jarrett. The officer was assisting a traffic accident investigation when he was struck the night of Oct. 28 and thrown 30 feet. Jarrett served with the Detroit Police Department for eight years.

The marker will be at the corner of Puritan Avenue and Monica Street -- near where he was struck.

The Detroit Police Department says Mayor Mike Duggan, police Chief James Craig, command staff, officers and community members will be on hand for the sign installation ceremony.
