More than 150 patrol cars lined up to caravan through town before slain Peach County Sgt. Patrick Sondron's funeral Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016. Sondron was killed in the line of duty.

Though their sirens cried in the bright cold morning, the patrol cars left the Peach County Law Enforcement Center without haste.

Motorcycles, ambulances and four fire trucks were among the more than 150 vehicles that rolled out of the Spruce Street station early Thursday before slain Peach County Sgt. Patrick Sondron’s funeral. Sondron was killed in the line of duty Sunday, along with Deputy Daryl Smallwood.

Residents lined the streets outside of Bluebird waiting for the parade of blue and red lights just after 9 a.m.

Law enforcement from all over Georgia was present for the procession to the Southside Baptist Church in Warner Robins, where services are being held at 10 a.m.
