Important information regarding funeral services for Pikeville (KY) Police Officer Scotty Hamilton:
SUNDAY – 1:00 P.M. – Eastern Kentucky Expo Center // Public Safety briefing at noon
Due to the very limited space and hilly terrain of the cemetery, only immediate family members and Pikeville Police Officers will process to the cemetery. Instead, after Officer Hamilton is placed into the hearse, Public Safety personnel and all others will walk four blocks to the parking lot of Pikeville Police Headquarters. From there, everyone will be able to observe the graveside service on the hillside in front of them.
To ease parking frustrations, area residents are encouraged to use off-site parking at one of the locations listed below. Shuttles will run continuously to the Expo Center and will do the same in return afterward.
• Pikeville Elementary
• Big Sandy Community College
• Medical Center and gravel lots off Bailey Boulevard
• Medical Center lots off Bypass Road
From the Expo Center to the Pikeville Cemetery, Officer Hamilton will be taken by Police Headquarters, Pikeville City Hall and the Pikeville Fire Department. Anyone wanting to pay respects but not attend the funeral service is encouraged to position themselves along the following route:
• Main Street south from Expo Center
• West on Huffman Avenue
• North on Hambley Boulevard
• Northeast on 4th Street
• East on Scott Avenue
• South on Bypass Road
• Northwest on Baird
• Northeast on Hambley Boulevard to Elm Street
It is not possible to give a precise time the procession will depart the Expo Center. It will very likely be 3:00 P.M. or later.
