On the eve of his funeral, well wishers have adorned Lakeland Police Officer Paul Dunn’s motorcycle with flowers and mementos. It’s being displayed at the fallen officer memorial in front of LPD headquarters on Massachusetts Avenue. Dunn, 50, died in an accident on Lakeland Highlands Road last Thursday.

Funeral services are scheduled for Wednesday at noon at Lakes Church, formerly Church of the Mall, at 1010 E. Memorial Blvd. The public is invited to attend or to line the procession route from the church to Lakeland Memorial Gardens Funeral Home, 2125 Bartow Road.

Tentatively the procession is expected to travel south on North Lake Parker Avenue and then south on Bartow Highway to the funeral home. LPD advises to check their Facebook page for updates.

For those who cannot attend, the service will be live-streamed on the LPD Facebook page
