The funeral service for Gallatin County Deputy Jake Allmendinger is set for Friday, Oct 25th, at 10 a.m. at the Commons in Bozeman. Deputy Allmendinger lost his life this past Saturday in an accident while on a call on Fairly Lake Road.

Procession route

Law enforcement and first responder vehicles from around the region will be taking part in a procession prior to Deputy Jake Allmendinger’s funeral service. The procession will begin on East Main Street at approximately 8:45 a.m. It will continue west on Main Street to Huffine Lane. The procession will then turn north on Love Lane and head to the Commons at Baxter and Love, where Jake’s service will begin at 10 a.m. The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office is encouraging people to line the procession route to show support for Jake’s family and the law enforcement and first responder community.

Drivers can expect long delays on Main Street as the procession moves through Bozeman. Please take alternate routes and avoid Main Street, if possible.
Prior to the procession, vehicles will be staging off of Frontage Road, east of Bozeman. Frontage Road will remain open, but be aware that there will be a large presence of law enforcement and first responder vehicles in that area starting at 7 a.m. Friday.
