Chelan County Sheriff's Office photo

The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office shared this photo Tuesday on the department’s Instagram page.

It shows an unidentified deputy shoveling snow from the memorial to Deputy Sal Gallegos on Highway 150 near Manson.

“Last year, 307 law enforcement officers passed away in the line of duty. One way we pay our respects is by doing our very best for you in all aspects of our job,” the department wrote.

Gallegos was shot and killed in 2003 by a man he was investigating for driving with a suspended license.

Gallegos was 35 years old.
