ALTON, Ill. (KMOV.com) – A Change.org petition is looking to designate Oct. 6 as “Hometown Hero Day: In Honor of Officer Blake C. Snyder” in Alton.

The petition states the day would not only pay tribute to Officer Snyder, but would also recognize a current member of the community “serving as Blake would have served.”

Officer Snyder was shot and killed while responding to a call in St. Louis County on Oct. 6.
