CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - A local college is honoring the sacrifice of a fallen police officer.

Thursday, officials at Virginia College of Business and Health dedicated a building to Sergeant Tim Chapin.

He was shot to death in April.

For the past couple of years, Chapin worked security on the campus and they wanted to honor him.

Assistant Police Chief Tom Kennedy spoke on behalf of the police department and Chapin's family.

"We were devastated by Tim's death. Naming a part of your building after him will make it clear to our community that Sergeant Chapin's death will always be remembered. All who come through these doors can know about our hero," Assistant Chief Kennedy said.

The building is 10,000 square feet.

It will be used primarily for medical programs, but also has general classroom and computer labs.
