ARVADA — A crowd of 4,000 law enforcement officials, family and others gathered Monday for service that lasted more than two hours to honor slain Park County Cpl. Nate Carrigan.

The funeral procession arrived at the Faith Bible Chapel to the sound of bagpipes just after 10 a.m. and the funeral service started about an hour later. A flag-draped casket stood in front of the altar, attended to by two honor guards.
