Former police chief inducted into hall of fame

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - On Monday night, the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police honored the late Chief Butch Chan by inducting him into their hall of fame.

Chan was an extremely active member and served as the district's representative. It was an honor his loved ones will never forget.

"My husband was a very humble man, but the impact that he has made on this community, the state, and even the whole United States is amazing," said Chief Butch Chan's wife, Laura Chan.

"He was known by everybody, and he was loved by everybody and this is just a small way of us honoring the contribution that Chief Chan made to the Chiefs Association," said Garden City Police Chief David Lyons.

Chan passed away while on a cruise last August.
