A plaque dedication in honor of a fallen Virginia State Police Trooper takes place Thursday.

Trooper Andrew D. Fox was killed while working traffic detail at the State Fair of Virginia on October fifth of 2012.  A plaque in honor of Trooper Fox, a Tazewell native, will be mounted outside the Meadow Event Park's public safety operations center, and a second will be inside the building.

The dedication ceremony takes place at the park.
