YORK COUNTY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – Five years ago this week, York County Sheriff’s Detective Mike Doty lost his life in the line of duty and three other officers were seriously hurt, Buddy Brown, Kyle Cummings and Randy Clinton.
Since those tragic events, Doty’s passion to serve has lived on in many ways including the 809 Foundation which was created in Det. Doty’s honor.
In addition to the 809 Foundation, other efforts to help law enforcement officers have been started including the nonprofit Hungry Heroes as well businesses in Fort Mill going blue each year for Mike Doty.
