OGDEN -- Jared Francom's name will now be a permanent fixture in the city where he served.
On Tuesday night, Ogden city and the city council passed and adopted a joint resolution to rename the Ogden City Public Safety Building the Francom Public Safety Building.
The building at 2186 Lincoln Ave. houses administration for both Ogden's police and fire departments.
An Ogden police officer and strike force agent, Francom was killed in early January while executing a search warrant for the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force at the home of Matthew David Stewart.
Upon entering the residence, gunfire erupted and Francom was hit by multiple gunshots.
Ogden officers Shawn Grogan, Kasey Burrell and Michael Rounkles, Weber County Sheriff's Nate Hutchinson, and Roy officer Jason VanderWarf were also injured in the deadly exchange.
The joint resolution states the tragic event had a significant impact on the Top of Utah community, but Francom's memory will live on through his family, friends and his fellow officers.
Ogden Police Chief Mike Ashment said he received a letter Tuesday from the Francom family, thanking the city for the gesture.
"This is a big deal to us, as you can well imagine," Ashment said.
Francom was sworn in as a police officer on Feb. 7, 2005. He graduated from the Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training on June 10 of the same year.
Francom was assigned to the strike force Aug. 22, 2009.
The new building name will go into effect Jan. 4, the one-year anniversary of the deadly shootout. The city will hold a dedication ceremony that day.
