Sgt. Jason Goodding’s name will be formally added to the Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in 2017, joining more than 180 Oregon law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

The state Board of Public Safety Standards and Training unanimously approved the Police Policy Committee recommendation to include Goodding’s name at a Thursday meeting.

Goodding, 39, died in February after he was shot serving an arrest warrant on convicted felon Phillip Ferry in downtown Seaside.

The Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony will be in May at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem.

Goodding was the 183rd Oregon law enforcement officer to die in the line of duty since the first recorded death in the 1880s, according to the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training. The memorial recognizes city, county, state, tribal and federal officers who work in law enforcement, corrections and parole and probation agencies who have died on duty.
