A former Youngsville police officer is being laid to rest. 

The funeral of Immanuel Washington is going on at Our Savior’s Church in Lafayette.

Washington died last week as he was training for a position at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. 

Before leaving the Youngsville Police Department in early July to pursue a future with Wildlife and Fisheries, Washington had worked for the department for 2 years. 

An American flag is on display in front of the church with many first responders in attendance.
