Following the funeral, a procession will take Burton to Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis where she will be laid to rest in the section dedicated to Heroes of Public Safety.
The Richmond Police Department said that the public is invited to the services to show their respect and honor Burton.
The route for the procession will be released in the coming days.
Gov. Mike DeWine offered his condolences to Burton’s family Wednesday.
“We sometimes forget how dangerous it is to be a police officer, and if you have a family member that goes out every day – I’ve talked to family members and say look, I worry about you every single day. So we owe our police officers a lot,” DeWine said.
Burton died Sunday night at Reid Health in Richmond, more than five weeks after she was shot in the line of duty on August 10 when responding to a traffic stop.
