Officer stabbed by inmate to be added to Alabama Law Enforcement Memorial

Officer Kenneth Bettis.

ATMORE, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama Department of Corrections will remember an officer who died after being stabbed by an inmate at Holman Correctional Facility earlier this month.

Officer Kenneth Bettis’ name will be added to the Alabama Law Enforcement Memorial next Wednesday. He will be the first officer to be added to the wall since it was dedicated back in March.

Investigators say Bettis was attacked in retaliation for denying an extra tray of food to an inmate.
