Fire Station Tribute To Fallen Officer "Under Investigation"

Fire station's officer Bolton tribute 'under investigation'

We got a tip from a firefighter that a homemade tribute to an MPD officer killed in the line of duty was under investigation by the city.  It sounded difficult to believe.  I mean, what's the harm in a sign with his badge number on it standing outside a fire station?  I was tasked with confirming or denying the tip.  A mayor's spokesperson actually confirmed an investigation was underway.  It remains unclear which protocol or city policy the firefighters may have violated.  The situation got quite a response from people participating in a memorial 5k for officer Sean Bolton, held the night of his funeral.
