A group of eleven Omaha police officers riding the 2017 Mickelson Trail Trek had a special reason for stopping at mile marker 17 near Minnekahta Junction west of Hot Springs, South Dakota. They paused to pay tribute to a fallen fellow officer, Kerrie Orozco, who was killed during an arrest in May, 2015. A small plaque embedded in the marker serves as a memorial to Orozco, and to all law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
