A commemorative coin that features a drawing by Arizona Republic editorial cartoonist Steve Benson was given to President Bush at a National Police Week memorial service, according to a story in today’s Republic.
The picture on the coin is of Rob Targosz, a Gilbert, Ariz., police officer who died in the line of duty last year. As E&P has previously reported, Benson is a reserve police officer in Gilbert — and the cartoonist trained with Targosz.
Benson’s work is distributed nationally by Creators Syndicate.
