Since the end of his watch, Corporal Michael Middlebrook has received numerous honors, as his service to the community was well-known by both his fellow officers and those around the Lafayette area.

Another honor came when a Lafayette area school was named after Middlebrook. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to honor Middlebrook and his family.

Now, Middlebrook's name has been etched into the Lafayette Police Department Memorial so that his legacy will forever be remembered by the community.

The post notes that Corporal Middlebrook was honored at the Beyond the Badge - Heart Law Enforcement Awards for his generous service that went far beyond his duties as an officer.
