PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

A donated church pew was transformed in tribute to fallen deputies.

The Greene County Sheriff's Department posted photos of a new bench in their lobby to their Facebook page.

The bench was actually a church pew donated by Crowley's Ridge Academy.

It was restored and now features department logos and "Back the Blue" across the backrest.

The post also states the center leg is dedicated in honor of Deputy Jay Mayfield who died recently of cancer. It features the deputy's badge number.

Also, the badge number of fallen Deputy Jerry Huffin will soon be added. The post states Huffin "passed away some years ago."
