Zachary, La (NBC33) — Zachary city officials joined East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden Saturday in dedicating part of Zachary city park to a hometown hero.
This brand new archway celebrates former Chief John Herty who served his community as an officer and Chief of Police for more than 40 years.
Chief Herty also ran the chains during Zachary High football games, and announced Zachary High baseball games.
Officials say they were proud to have this field bear Chief Herty's name.
